Carlsbad hosts free composting workshops

The city of Carlsbad is partnering with The Ecology Center to host a series of hands-on composting workshops this spring.

Composting turns organic waste, including food scraps, leaves and grass trimmings, into organic fertilizer. Participation is free for Carlsbad residents. Registration is required.

The next workshop will be held Saturday, April 22, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation Discovery Center at 1580 Cannon Road.

Also on tap is a second workshop on Saturday, May 20, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Calavera Schoolhouse Community Garden at 2997 Glasgow Drive.

Carlsbad residents may apply for a discount coupon to purchase a yard waste bin or vermicomposting bin at a subsidized rate while supplies last. To register for a workshop or apply for a bin coupon, visit The Ecology Center website.
