Free Online Class: Managing Food Waste at Home
Saturday, October 3, 2020
Taught by Pierce County Environmental Educators, these free classes are appropriate for all ages and designed to equip you with the knowledge and tools to reduce your eco-footprint and make Pierce County a more livable community for everyone. Register for one, two, or all the classes to receive emailed handouts and the Zoom link beforehand.
Prevent your food waste scraps from going to the landfill where they contribute to the production of methane, a greenhouse gas. Managing organic scraps at home and returning their nutrients to the soil helps aid in the retention of carbon in soil. Several options will be explored including vermicomposting, trench composting, digesters, Bokashi, and the use of tumblers and other self-contained composting systems
