Description of event: Growing healthy plants, including our food, starts with healthy soil. At MUN Botanical Garden we make our own – with fabulous results. All organic material (anything produced by a living organism) is recycled through a combination of natural biological and chemical processes. When we compost, we utilize natural processes. This presentation will introduce the practical steps of starting composting, indoors and out. The indoor presentation will be followed by a short walk in the garden to view some compost bins.
