Free urban composting workshop offered

Learn how to divert food scraps and organic yard debris from the landfill.

In time, this material can become valuable soil for your garden and yard. Learn how to set up a compost system in an urban setting with recommendations for keeping critters out of your pile. The class will be taught by Rhianna Simes, an Oregon State University Extension Service instructor.

This free class is sponsored by the Ashland Conservation Commission and Recology Ashland Sanitary Service.

The class starts at 10 a.m. and will be held at the recycling center located on Water Street, next to the skate park. Officials ask that drivers park on Water Street to leave parking spaces for recyclers. Children ages 13 and up are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult.
