Green Action Centre is partnering with the West Interlake Watershed District to offer a free workshop on the basics of backyard composting!


Folks in the St.Laurent area, join us at St. Laurent’s Parish Hall for info and tips on how to compost at home during this 1 1/2 hour workshop.

Did you know that adding organics to the landfill produces methane, a greenhouse gas 25x more powerful than carbon dioxide? By composting, you can produce rich garden fertilizer for free at home, and help save the planet to boot! Composting is an easy-to-learn activity that kids can take part in!
