Sustainability Series Presents: The Ins and Outs of Composting

Green Calgary presents Master Composter Bert Einsiedel in a workshop that will cover the basics of indoor and outdoor composting. We will outline what is needed to create good quality compost in Calgary, as well as the do’s and don’ts of composting. You will learn about:

• What can be added and what should be avoided
• The difference between greens and browns
• Adequate moisture
• Turning frequency
• Avoiding smell and pests
• Using compost in the yard and garden
• The various methods of composting including Bokashi, Vermicomposting, Backyard and more!
