Join us on Monday, June 7 at 11 AM for Creating a Healthy Ecosystem Through Composting (Webinar)

Are you curious about composting? Want to learn more about the biology of healthy soil? Do you want to help reduce the amount of organic waste that would otherwise end up in the landfill? Join Charlie Pioli, founder of O-Town Compost, Orlando’s community composter, as he shares more about the importance of recycling organic waste into nutrient-rich compost. The benefits of composting include soil enrichment, moisture retention, the suppression of plant diseases and pests, and a reduced need for chemical fertilizers. If you’re looking to help preserve the environment while helping fuel the local food system, then this is the program for you.

By participating in this program, you can expect to learn:

  • the basics of composting;
  • the biology of healthy soil;
  • And how to keep organics out of the landfill.

 

This program is presented by Charlie Pioli and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
