LEARN ABOUT COMPOSTING DAY

Tuesday, May 29th: Following yesterday’s anniversary of the Sierra Club’s founding, today is another green day to celebrate. Today is LEARN ABOUT COMPOSTING DAY.

Composting is easy to do. Composting is beneficial for our gardens and our plants. Composting reduces waste going to landfills, making our planet happier also. We don’t need to wait for Earth Day (or Learn about Composting Day) to compost. We can celebrate with this sustainable practice 365 days a year.

Holiday Insights created this day in 2011. They “believe everyone can practice composting, to leave a better world for our children.” Their site (http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreholidays/May/compostingday.htm) has information about how to compost, with several informative links.

Here are two other sites that will get you headed out back with a bin of food scraps in a jiffy.

You can compost with worms too. Called vermiculture, you can have an outside bin or a small inside bin. I had a tub of worms under my kitchen sink for years. They ate newspapers, vegetable peelings, banana peels, coffee grounds, tea bags and more. Have questions about worm composting? Check out this site. Liz (in north Texas) is a great ‘go-to’ source. http://www.wormbincomposting.com/
