Thursday, April 23 at 5:30 pm. "Composting: Making Dirt for Earth Week” Lecture by Dr. Steve Gilbert, Institute of Neurotoxicology and Neurological Disorders (INND),
It is not a matter of “IF” we are going to have composting but “WHEN”. We need to be responsible for the organic waste we are generating. Composting of yard and food waste from homes, restaurants, and institutions such as schools and hospitals is absolutely necessary for ensuring a sustainable and healthy environment. Composting has many advantages such as reducing landfill usage, curbing production of green house gases, and creating a useful product. To be successful the public must enthusiastically embrace composting. We aim to increase support for composting by improving the public’s understanding of the benefits of composting and the joys of making dirt.
