Backyard composting classes are available free of charge to Lexington County residents. Courses on Backyard Composting, and Building your own Rain Barrel are called Backyard Benefits Classes and are offered three times per year on Saturdays and can be offered on request as staff availability allows. The course fees from the Backyard Benefits courses are to take home a rain barrel after you complete building one.
What are you doing with your raw fruit and vegetable scraps? Your yard debris? Instead of throwing these items in the trash, consider composting them.
You've probably heard about it, but what exactly is composting? Composting is nature's way of recycling. Microorganisms break down organic material - like yard trimmings and food scraps - into a dark, crumbly, soil-like material that can be used for gardening and landscaping.
Your compost is free material for fertilizing your garden and lawn. It will improve your soil quality, retain water and improve water drainage.
