Leave the Leaves! and Other Beneficial Composting Practices

October 7, 2022 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am EDT


Fall is the perfect time to practice good composting and mulching practices for your trees and plant beds and to start a compost system to create black gold for your spring garden. Instead of raking leaves to the curb, allow fallen leaves to feed your trees, enrich the soil and provide overwinter protection for roots and habitat for insects. Extension Master Gardener Nina DeRosa discusses where to compost, what to compost and what not to compost, and how to manage your compost system. 

If you can’t join us for a live online presentation, video recordings of the sessions are posted to the Master Gardener Virtual Classroom.
