PA Resources Council Hosts In-Person, Virtual Workshops On Backyard Composting In November

PA Resources Council will host two workshops on the benefits of backyard composting in November, one in-person in Pittsburgh and one online.

The workshops will be held--

-- November 2: In-Person at PRC’s education center in Pittsburgh’s Northside, 828 W. North Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15233 starting at 6:00 p.m.

-- November 16: Webinar starting at 6:00 p.m.

Creating well-balanced compost is very easy in the fall,” according to PRC Environmental Education Coordinator Emily Stein.  “As trees shed leaves there’s an abundance of both decaying and fresh leaves, which each add value to compost.”

In addition to leaves, pinecones and straw can be placed in the compost bin along with vegetable and fruit scraps, coffee grounds, eggshells and other plant-based material, explains Stein.

“Anything that used to be alive and no longer is will break down and decompose,” she says. “Only certain things should go in a backyard bin because we don’t want to attract rodents or create odor problems, which is why we encourage people to take our class before establishing a compost system at home.”
