Tis the season to get the compost hopping. If you’re one of the roughly 50 percent of Metro Vancouverites who haven’t yet learned how to compost, or if you want to brush up on your techniques, there are several opportunities in May with moi.
First up, I’m working with Mole Hill Community Housing to set up a composting system for their residents and other West End community members. They’ve just installed a rodent resistant three-bin system on site, beautifully made by local Cedar Creek Enterprises. If you want to compost your food waste there, you must attend one of two compost workshops. The first one is this Saturday.
Next weekend I’m in Coquitlam at the Inspiration Garden celebrating International Compost Awareness Week by doing a compost workshop. There are a number of other fun family-oriented activities scheduled that week at the Inspiration Garden. Check it out.
Finally, on May 26th, I’ll be at Britannia Community Centre, offering a compost workshop as part of the Grandview Woodland Food Connection spring gardening series.
Happy Compost Awareness Week!
