After polling a bunch of you on Instagram I was shocked to learn that some of the cities you’re in don’t have a city composting program. All that food waste is just being thrown out!
To help minimize all of this going into the landfill I decided to put together some info for you on how to set up and maintain a backyard compost.
I do live in an apartment so I had to do some research to find the best and EASIEST way for you to to be able to do backyard compost without feeling overwhelmed. Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the whole situation really is.
Among my sources I got amazing info from an old student of mine, Emma, Who has been all about compost as a kid as well has Lauren Maris, the Environmental Program Specialist for the City Of Red Deer. Im so thankful for their willingness to share their expertise and resources with me to help some of you!
