Composting is easy and inexpensive. Improper disposal of manure is unsightly, breeds flies, may create health hazards, and can contaminate local streams and water sources. Using composted manure on your garden and landscaping will help your plants thrive and conserve water, too! This workshop will cover the basics of traditional composting as well as the particulars associated with composting horse manure on-site.
