Composting: Black Gold for your Garden @ Grateful Tomato Garden
Jun 15 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

As long as we’re growing and eating fruits and veggies, we’re creating lots of kitchen scraps and plant debris that has to be dealt with. Why toss that material into our green waste bins when we can compost it instead? Compost is a super affordable (mostly free) and incredibly useful soil amendment, adding organic matter and increasing the biological activity in our soil.
