Trash Can Composter Workshop

Iowa State University Extension

Come learn about a method of making “black gold” (compost) utilizing a smaller amount of space on Tuesday November 28, 6:30 pm at the Mahaska County Extension Office; 212 North I Street, Oskaloosa.

Mahaska County Master Gardener John Langstraat will teach how to convert plastic trash cans into garden composters. Participants who wish to make a composter should bring a larger plastic trash can with lid. If you have a cordless drill and 1/4” (or larger) wood bit please bring them also. Additional composting resources will be available.

This workshop is free and open to the public. Observers are welcome.
