Composting Basics

compost

Join Shawnee Town Museum and Parks and Recreation staff as we introduce you to starting your own compost. No lawn required! While composting may be a "hot" topic today, it was very much an important part of life on any Shawnee farm or garden in the 1920's. Manure, kitchen and yard waste, all combine to create a wonderfully nutrient rich mixture to add to flower beds, vegetable patches, and potted plants. This class aims to teach what elements are needed to start and maintain a compost in order to reap the benefits of this "black gold". No previous gardening experience required.
