How to Compost: A Great Way to Celebrate Earth Day!

Saturday, April 23 @ 10:30 am

Join the Athol Public Library on Saturday, April 23 @ 10:30 as we welcome Rick Innes.

Celebrate Earth Day by learning how to reduce your contributions to the landfill -and- improve your soil with composting!

Composting is an easy, natural process for disposing of organic materials. With a little science and effort, you can make better compost faster and use it in your gardens with great results!

Rick will share his expertise and have a hands-on activity for younger attendees – Please bring all your questions!
