SAN ANTONIO — The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will hold a Backyard Gardening series program on home composting May 20 at the AgriLife Extension office in Suite 208 of Conroy Square, 3355 Cherry Ridge Drive in San Antonio.
The ‘Home Composting’ program will be presented from 6:30-8:30 p.m. to show attendees how to start a compost pile that can be used for gardening and landscaping.
“This program will provide useful information and training for the home gardener and the community gardener,” said David Rodriguez, AgriLife Extension agent for horticulture in Bexar County.
Rodriguez and Bexar County Master Gardener John Sells will give instruction and demonstrate composting techniques.
“Composting is good for the environment and a great way to supply valuable organic nutrients for your plants and trees,” Rodriguez said. “It’s very easy to begin and sustain a compost pile. It just takes a little direction in building a pile, properly placing it and knowing what to use as appropriate composting materials.”
Registration is $10 and attendees should RSVP to Angel Torres at 210-467-6575 or email@example.com/. Make checks payable to Texas A&M AgriLife Extension.
