There are many nasty myths about garbage – the food waste we throw away. We will demonstrate 3 easy ways to turn the food waste of today into the fertilizer of tomorrow. By composting using easily available materials, it is possible to convert bad smells, bad looks, and bad chores into a production operation with an outstanding outcome. We will demonstrate a fence ring, a city subsidized composter, and a worm composter setup-and-operate example. The most fun is the worm bin, and we will explain simple details of vermicomposting operations. Folks will go home with an example of compost recovered from the Lowell Folk Festival last year.
