The description of the event is below:
Composting: Composting put simply is a unique method of recycling. It uses existing microorganisms to decompose organic matter into usable and highly nutritious soil. It can be done in your backyard, under your sink or even in commercial settings. All you need is know the composting recipe for success, an open mind, and the desire to help the environment.
