Composting workshop set for Saturday

GILL — Always wanted to let things rot in an environmentally responsible manner but didn’t know how?

The Gill Energy Commission will hold a free composting workshop on Saturday , 10 a.m. to noon at the Gill Town Hall, 325 Main Road. Learn how to set up an inexpensive and easy indoor or outdoor composting system. Children elementary-age and older are invited to accompany parents.

Composting saves money and water, creates a valuable soil amendment and mitigates climate change, according to organizers.

Workshop includes an indoor worm-bin demonstration and how-to, outdoor compost bin how-to, local resources, and educational handouts. Led by Amy Donovan, Program Director at Franklin County Solid Waste Management District. Indoor composting pails free for the first 30 Gill residents, $8 for non-residents.
