Tackle Composting and Curb Appeal in Talks at Green Spring Gardens

Fall Curb AppealGreen Spring Gardens is offering two Garden Talks this fall that will help you give your garden an organic boost and improve your home’s curb appeal.

On Friday, Oct. 16, 2020, come to Green Spring for “Garden Talk: Composting Made Simple,” and learn how to start composting at home. Instead of dragging your kitchen, garden and yard waste out to the curb every week, learn how to use that waste to make valuable compost for your yard and garden. Extension Master Gardeners will show you what it takes to build your own compost pile.
