Leaves Make Great Tomatoes: Home Composting

October 3, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm


If there is such a thing as a magic substance, compost is that thing.  It loosens clay soil, builds up sandy soils, helps soils drain better or helps soils hold more moisture.  And, if you’re growing tomatoes, it just can’t be beat!  We’ll cover how composting works, what kinds of bins to use and how to add compost to your garden.

We will be working on the farm, so please dress appropriately.  That includes dressing for the weather and wearing closed toed shoes.  This is a hands on class, so be prepared to spend most of the time in the field.  A water bottle and gloves are also recommended.

  • Class meets at Lomax Incubator Farm on Wednesday, October 3, 2018
