Some of what we toss into our trash cans can be composted into our gardens. Junk mail, kitchen scraps and yard trimmings can all go into a compost pile, instead of the landfill.
“Composting should be odorless, take up a small space, divert from the landfill and make you feel productive!” said Composting Instructor Wilma Nakamura.
Composting workshops are held on the second Saturday of each month. The cost is $5. Pre-registration is required. Call 573-3911.
SharingAloha, a nonprofit organization, sponsors the workshops with partial funding from the County of Maui, Solid Waste Division Recycling Section.
Using red wriggler worms for composting allows the process to be done both indoors and outdoors. This allows for the production of nutrient-rich and clean soil to be produced all year round.
