Native Plant School: Composting • Harvey County

Saturday, Mar 30th, 2019 @ 9am
Dyck Arboretum of the Plains • 177 West Hickory • Hesston, KS • Map

Composting is an easy and rewarding way to turn your kitchen scraps and yard waste into useful material while also saving it from the landfill. We will learn about compost pile biology, construction and maintenance as well as how to build your own rolling compost bins.

The Dyck Arboretum of the Plains offers numerous workshops that encourage the use of native plants in landscaping. Native plants are drought tolerant, ornamental, and provide food and shelter to wildlife. A landscape rich with native plants can be enjoyed for its beauty and the wealth of birds and pollinators it attracts.

All classes are $10 per person, or $50 when you register for all six classes ahead of time. Members receive a 10% discount.
