Composting Class with Phil Phelan

The people have spoken, and they want to make compost! We weren’t expecting such a large turnout for Phil’s composting class! Our classes are usually held in our conference room/classroom, but we had to move everyone to the greenhouse!


Making your own compost is easy, inexpensive and arguably the best thing you can do for your soil. Colorado is notorious for red, clay soil that doesn’t drain well. Adding compost loosens the soil and makes pathways for microbes, oxygen, earthworms and roots. You can make your own from kitchen scraps and yard waste.
