Backyard Composting Workshop

The Coastal Composting Council (CCC) is a regional chapter of the North Carolina Composting Council. The mission is to spread awareness of the benefits of composting such as diverting waste from the landfill, creating healthier soil, producing more nutritious produce and then mental health benefits of gardening. The CCC was founded by a UNCW alumni and has been the medium by which UNCW has created collaboration efforts with New Hanover County Waste Management.

This workshop will focus on methods that the average person can use to start composting in their own backyard. There are several options for those who are interested in reaping the benefits of composting with the organic waste they produce, a small dedicated area, and minimal maintenance. You will not only receive a crash course in each of these approaches, but also have the opportunity to ask members of the CCC with any questions you have along the way!

Teachers with valid teacher ID and kids (under 18) can attend for no charge!
