Compost Class at UDC
The College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES), of the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), is holding a compost class for the Van Ness community. The class will meet six times for two and a half hours and cost $100 $50 total. The class will start in late May. We need your assistance with deciding the logistics of the class and if this class is of interest to the community. We hope you can join us at our compost class introduction meeting on Wednesday, May 16.
What is compost?
Compost is organic material that can be added to soil to help plants grow. Making compost keeps your yard and food waste materials out of landfills where they take up space and release methane, a greenhouse gas.
Compost loosens clay soils and helps sandy soils retain water. Adding compost to soil improves its fertility and stimulates healthy root development in plants. The organic matter provided in compost provides food for microorganisms, which keeps the soil in a healthy, balanced condition.
