Learn how to compost at free classes

By From page A5 | October 16, 2012

The city of Davis Recycling Program is offering two free composting classes this week, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Game Room at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St., and from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Friday in the Club Room at the Vets’ Center.

In addition to backyard composting and worm composting, these classes will place a particular emphasis on simple, pest-free methods of composting food scraps. After attending a class, Davis residents can sign up to receive a starter set of composting worms for $5 and residents of single-family homes can receive a backyard compost bin for $10.

Class attendees who live in Davis can enter to win a free worm composting starter kit, including a worm bin, composting worms and bedding, all set up and ready to compost your food scraps.

To register, call the Public Works Department at 530-757-5686 or email [email protected].
