PA Resources Council will host a series of five backyard composting and recycling and waste reduction online Conservation Workshops in January.

Make a New Year’s resolution to learn something new in 2021!

“Since launching online learning in 2020, 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 webinar sessions will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on January 7, 13, 19 and 27.

The course fee includes instruction plus a FreeGarden EARTH compost bin, which features an 82-gallon capacity ideal for both urban and suburban settings.  

Participants in the Backyard Composting webinars will receive compost bins following the webinars.  

Those living in the greater Philadelphia area will pick up compost bins at Rose Tree Park in Media, Pa., while those living in the greater Pittsburgh area will pick up their compost bins at PRC’s headquarters located on the North Side by appointment. 

Recycling & Waste Reduction

PRC will offer a free “Recycling & Waste Reduction” webinar on Thursday, January 14, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
