Approximately 25% of the waste we generate each day is compostable — given a few weeks in the proper conditions, it will break down in to rich, beautiful organic material called hummus which can then be used to grow plants and enrich soil.
The Fullerton Arboretum’s Education Program Manager, Miguel Macias will show you how easy it is to start your own home composting system! Learn what to add into your heap and what absolutely needs to stay out of the pile. Once you put these skills to practice and begin to divert waste from overfilling landfills, you will feel like you are doing your part in saving the planet.
