Extension offering free program on composting

OTTAWA - The U of I Extension’s Four Seasons Gardening Program will continue on Tuesday, Sept. 25 with a session titled “Making Your Compost Cook – Fixing the Right Recipe.”

To create a higher quality compost and get a finished product in a shorter time, it is important to have the right mix of materials. Extension Educator Duane Friend will discuss how to get the right mix by using simple calculations or online recipe calculators.

This program will be offered via a live webinar at 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 25 at area Extension Offices including LaSalle County in Ottawa, Bureau County in Princeton and Marshall-Putnam in Henry. This webinar may also be viewed anywhere internet access is available on Sept. 25 or Thursday, Sept. 27 at 6:30 p.m. Participants must pre-register at go.illinois.edu/4seasons_webinars. Recorded videos of the sessions can be viewed following the program at go.illinois.edu/4seasonsrecordings.
