Hi, my name is Ed Bruske. I’m the president of the D.C Urban Gardeners and I’m here to talk to you today about composting. I’m also a certified master gardener, I lecture about composting and what you see behind me is my personal garden here in the District of Columbia, about a mile from the White House. And all of these vegetable gardening that you see here have been done with composting, no artificial fertilizers, no pesticides, just good old recycled compost. And that’s what I want to talk to you about today, is how you can turn grass clippings, leaves that you sweep in the fall, kitchen scraps, apple cores, banana peels, turn all that good stuff into rich compost that you could amend your soil with. And turn your soil into something really healthy for vegetables.
Some people have some concerns about composts, you may have see that garden store in bags or making it at home, isn’t that problematic? What about attracting pests or odors? What will the neighbors think?
Well I’m going to show you today how can do that without attracting pest without making smells. In fact compost should smell really great, not like garbage. And all you need are a few simple tools, perhaps a shovel, pitch fork, fork spades or simple material from the hardware store and I’ll give you some other options as well for composting.
So if you’re ready, why don’t we get ready composting, turning recycled garbage into what gardener’s call Gardener’s Gold.
