County waste department to provide free composting workshop Saturday in Hemet

The Riverside County Department of Waste Resources will host a free backyard composting workshop in Hemet on Saturday (March 19).

Attend this “how-to” workshop to learn how to recycle organic resources such as yard trimmings, fruit and vegetable waste into a dark, crumbly, sweet-smelling soil conditioner.  Compost can be used to enrich the soil in gardens, lawns and house plants.  Instead of putting organic waste in the garbage to be hauled to the landfill, learn to compost.
