Join BBG staff, book contributors, and master composters for a hands-on introduction to composting! At the Garden Shop Terrace, learn about indoor composting and meet the Garden’s worms. At the Home Composting Exhibit, learn techniques for outdoor composting and try out an assortment of bins and tools. Talk with a compost expert and pick up literature at either site.
