Composting 101

March 4, 2010
Maui Weekly

“The average person throws four pounds of garbage out per day!” said composting instructor Wilma Nakamura. “Junk mail, used office paper and food garbage are the most common items found in our trash. But composting organic material like paper and food garbage along with garden trimmings will make great compost.”

Adding compost to your soil benefits the environment by improving its ability to soak up water, which helps prevent soil erosion caused by rainwater. “Plus, less of your trash is going to the landfill,” said Nakamura.

This workshop also introduces worm composting. Students will learn how to maintain a healthy worm bin, where to locate a worm bin and how to harvest and use worm compost.
