(Woodland, CA) – Are you interested in learning how to turn garbage into gold for your garden soil? Join the Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency at the Hanna & Herbert Bauer Memorial Community Garden in Woodland for a free garden composting class on Saturday, February 24 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.

In this hands-on class, participants will learn how to set up and maintain small scale compost systems with the goal of creating nutrient-rich soil to help fruits and vegetables grow well. Participants will have the benefit of learning from two garden experts, one Master Gardener of Yolo County, and the garden manager of the Hanna and Herbert Bauer Memorial Community Garden. This is a great opportunity for garden enthusiasts to discover various compost system designs and have questions answered.

This class is free to all, and is part of the Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency’s commitment to providing education that can help residents eat fresh fruits and vegetables and live healthier lives. Pre-registration by February 23 is required for the class. To register, contact David Linebarger at (530) 666-8429 or david.linebarger@yolocounty.org. Please dress for the weather and wear shoes that can get dirty. The garden is located at 137 N.

Classes are offered for free throughout the year at the Community Garden. Learn more about the garden activities and classes by visiting the website, www.yolocounty.org/garden.
