Some say cheap…I lovingly call it thrifty! What better way to amend your soil, reduce input to landfill, exercise, connect more with your food AND grow bigger, better and more rich plants all for free? Composting! This week we will learn to turn your food scraps and garden waste into a deep luscious and rich compost. We will be joined by two Ashtabula natives: Isaac Coblentz, an extraordinary gardener, rope maker, artist and chili pepper popper and Suzanne Westlake who you will remember from last month’s class on soils of Ashtabula. Suzanne will be walking us through the worm bin at OSU extension and Isaac will be talking with us about composting. It’s going to be quite a ride – see you on Tuesday at 6pm!


Miss last week’s class? No worries – click here to view. Last week, we were fortunate to have Ashtabula Master Gardener and co-owner of Honey Hollow Herbs, Meghan Davis, join us for some instruction on growing herbs. Check out the website: ashtabulalocalfood.org on the “Previous Classes” tab. Or, click here.
