PA Resources Council Offers Backyard Composting, Recycling & Waste Reduction Conservation Workshops In December

PA Resources Council will offer online Backyard Composting and Recycling & Waste Reduction conservation workshops in December.

“Since launching online learning in the spring, PRC has received a tremendous amount of feedback concerning how the webinar format is an extremely convenient way to learn from the comfort of home,” according to PRC Education Specialist Nancy Martin.  “And the online format enables individuals throughout the Commonwealth to take part since webinars require no travel to a specific classroom location.”

Backyard Composting

Learn the benefits of backyard composting, including the overall process, methods for setting up a compost pile, proper maintenance and ways to use finished compost.

The webinars will be held December 2, 10 and 15 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The $70  course fee includes instruction plus a FreeGarden EARTH compost bin [for Southwest and Southeast PA residents], which features an 82-gallon capacity ideal for both urban and suburban settings.
