International Compost Awareness Week is May 2 - 8, 2021
Composting is a natural process by which organic materials decompose. The resulting product, called compost, can be mixed with potting soil as a soil amendment, and is used to improve the health of your soil, aid in erosion control and help control soil fertility.
It usually takes from three to six months to create a mature, usable batch of compost. While there is no single “correct” method, there are different “recipes” for making compost. All are based on the scientific principle of aerobic decomposition.
University of California Master Gardeners, Open Garden Sessions at the Fair Oaks Horticulture Center
In an abundance of caution during the COVID-19 pandemic, the UC Master Gardeners of Sacramento County are not currently holding any events at the Fair Oaks Horticulture Center.
We hope that this changes soon. While we wait to see you in person, please visit their educational resources at YouTube, Facebook, and Publications.
Have questions about composting, gardening, pruning, etc.? Please send the Master Gardeners an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
