“Organic Gardening 101: Compost and Cover Crops” workshop November 10

Enrich your soil without buying fertilizer or compost. Learn to recycle and grow your own nutrients at home with Organic Gardening 101 workshop “Compost and Cover Crops” -- at North Florida Community College’s Green Industries Institute on Saturday, November 10 in Monticello, Fla. The workshop will begin at 9:30 a.m. and end at 11:30 a.m.

“Waste from your kitchen and yard can easily be composted into rich soil for your garden,” said Claire Mitchell, Sustainable Agriculture Programs Manager at Green Industries. “Rich soil is the key to growing healthy organic crops, so the more you improve your soil the better vegetables you will grow.”

The workshop will go over how to compost at home, as well as how to choose cover crops to improve garden soil. Cover crops are plants grown specifically to improve soil by adding nitrogen and organic matter, as well as suppressing weeds.

This workshop and others are offered on Saturdays mornings at 9:30 a.m. and cost $15 to attend. If participants bring a friend, the friend gets in half off. Participants are asked to pre-register online at /green-industries/organic-gardening-101-classes.

Green Industries Institute is located at 2729 W Washington St on Highway 90, just three miles west of downtown Monticello. For more information, please call (850) 973-1701 or email Claire Mitchell at mitchellc@nfcc.edu.
