COMPOSTING         e-mail galvcountymgs@gmail.com to pre-register
Saturday, August 24, 2019
1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Galveston County Master Gardener Jim Gilliam's presentation will teach you how to compost, what factors to measure and monitor, and how to use the finished product to the best advantage. Compost is the most important addition gardeners can provide to improve their garden soils. America recycles about 34% of its daily refuse. The rest goes into sanitary landfills. Around 75% of that destined for landfills could be recycled in some way, considering much is yard and kitchen waste. Composting is Nature's way to recycle available materials which can be added to our garden soil to improve its physical, chemical and biological properties.
