Galveston County Master Gardener Jim Gilliam’s presentation will teach you how to compost, what factors to measure and monitor, and how to use the finished product to the best advantage. This is THE MOST IMPORTANT ADDITION gardeners can provide to improve their garden soil. America recycles about 34% of its daily refuse. The rest goes into sanitary landfills. Around 75% of that destined for landfills could be recycled in some way, considering much is yard and kitchen waste. Composting is Nature’s way to recycle available materials which can be added to our garden soil to improve its physical, chemical and biological properties.

All programs are conducted at the Galveston County AgriLife Extension Office at 4102-B Main Street (FM 519) inside Carbide Park in La Marque, and are free to the public except when noted. However, we ask that you pre-register so we can ensure there is an adequate number of handouts. To register for a program, please call 281-309-5065 or e-mail galvcountymgs@gmail.com  Check the website for details and updates: http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/galveston/

If special program accommodations by participants are needed, please contact the Extension Office no later than five days before the program.
