The Riverside County Waste Management Department will host a free backyard composting workshop in Idyllwild on Saturday (June 8).
Attend this “how-to” workshop to learn how to recycle organic resources such as yard trimmings, fruit and vegetable waste into a dark, crumbly, sweet-smelling soil conditioner. Compost can be used to enrich the soil in gardens, lawns and house plants. Instead of putting organic waste in the garbage to be hauled to the landfill, learn to compost!
The free “how-to” backyard composting workshop begins at 10 a.m. at the Idyllwild Nature Center, 25225 Highway 243. Nature Center entrance fee is required.
