Clark County’s Master Composter Recycler program will host a free, family-friendly Earth Day event Saturday to highlight how composting can help protect the planet.
Join the program from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Natural Gardens at Pacific Community Park, 1515 N.E. 164th Ave., in Vancouver. Those attending will learn the basic principles of composting, including how to make hot compost, build a lasagna garden, and set up and maintain a worm bin composting system.
The event will include a Red Worm Petting Zoo with red worms raised and bred by the Master Composter Recycler program. Worm bins can divert up to 200 pounds of food scraps annually from the landfill. When food scraps are fed to worms, the worms produce rich soil that makes plants healthy. Photos are welcomed and encouraged.
