Drop in every Saturday between 2-4 pm, and together, we’ll explore different aspects of our environment during fun and interactive sessions in our water lab.

What happens to the fall leaves, grass clippings, or weeds you pull from the garden? They don’t just disappear! Like all natural materials, they decompose. Composting is the practice of managing waste to be reborn as a soil enricher. Come and learn how to compost, and find out what sort of critters make the whole process happen.
