Backyard Composting with Janice McPhillips

Thursday, April 29, 2021

Whether you are growing perennials, vegetables, or ornamental shrubs and trees, the best way to have healthy plants is to start with healthy soil. The best way to create healthy soil is to add compost, and making compost in your own backyard allows you to recycle yard and leaf waste as well as food prep scraps into "black gold!” This workshop will teach you how to best utilize a backyard bin by including the proper mix of "browns" and "greens."

This program will be held via Zoom. To join us, please register online, and we will email you the link shortly before the meeting.

This workshop will be presented by Hingham resident Janice McPhillips, long time member of the town's Cleaner Greener Hingham Committee (formerly known as the Long Range Waste Disposal and Recycling Committee). Janice has over 30 years of experience as a backyard gardener, URI Master Composter, Master Urban Gardener, and has been working at Holly Hill Farm in Cohasset as a Farm and School Garden Educator since 2008.
