soilCelebrate the International Year of Soils – Recycle Organics! a talk by Ned Beecher on May 20th at 7:00 at the Cook Memorial Library in Tamworth.

2015 is the International Year of Soils, and what today’s soils need most is organic matter.   In the recycling world, the current hot topic is “organics” – “wastes” that contain carbon, such as biosolids (treated wastewater solids), food scraps, leaf and yard waste, composts, etc.  Organics are incredible resources – generating renewable energy and providing numerous benefits to soils in home gardens, lawns, parks, agriculture, horticulture, and silviculture.  Come learn and discuss how  your compost pile and home septage is – or can be – part of this growing trend to keep organics out of landfills and improve soils.
