Like to grow things? Like being nice to the earth?
Most of us know that composting is great in so many ways…keeping food waste out of landfills, making really healthy soil for our plants. But maybe you haven’t been able to get your head around how composting in the city might work.
The Alliance for a Greener South Loop is partnering with the Chicago Conservation Corps to present a free composting workshop to help answer all your composting questions and get you thinking about how we can compost right here in the South Loop.
Join an amazing line-up of composting Ambassadors and sustainable farming and gardening Leaders, like the innovative vertical farm The Plant and the nation’s first industrial worm composting facility, Nature’s Little Recyclers, to learn about the power of composting.This hands-on workshop will introduce various types of composting and current systems in place for city-dwellers to use. Learn step-by-step how to set up a personal worm composting bin, work with food waste-hauling companies like Pleasant Farms, Waste Management and Collective Resources, and the latest on outdoor composting City ordinances. Walk away with a Composting Toolkita chance to win free starter-kits, and other materials to succeed!
