Let’s Talk Dirty: Composting 101
Apr. 14, 2022 | 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Daily Acts and City of Petaluma
Have you heard of California’s new law, SB 1383? Residents and businesses are now required to keep food and compostable materials out of our landfills in an effort to reduce the impacts of climate change.
Do you want to learn how you can compost at home and help to cultivate healthy soils? Healthy soils equal healthy plants! Composting is the natural process of recycling organic matter, such as leaves and food scraps, into a valuable fertilizer that can enrich soil and plants. Fondly referred to by farmers, compost is considered “black gold!” Waste doesn’t exist in an ecosystem, there is a purpose and function at each stage of life! Composting is a great regenerative practice that increases soil health, retains water, and sequesters carbon.
This introductory webinar will be led by Compost Gal’s Master Composter, Lori Caldwell, who will be going over the various ways you can start composting in your very own backyard or garden!
Lori Caldwell is an Alameda County Master Composter, Bay-Friendly Certified Landscape Professional, self-taught edible gardener, and residential sheet mulch maven. She recently received a technical certification from the Maine Compost School and works as an educator with Stop Waste. Her mission: “To connect people to the soil and all that it provides.” She has been happily teaching sustainable gardening classes and transforming yards in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2007!
Please join us for an enriching workshop over ZOOM to learn all of the rejuvenating ways that you can turn your waste into your garden’s best ally for combating climate change, sequestering carbon, and creating healthy plants!
