ELLSWORTH, Maine — Woodlawn in partnership with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Program is pleased to offer a Backyard Composting workshop, Saturday, June 8, from 10:30 am until noon.

Join Master Gardener Volunteers Jan & Tom McIntyre as they discuss the basic science behind successful backyard composting on Saturday, June 8 from 10:30 am until noon. They will teach you how to build and manage a compost pile so you end up with a nice crumbly garden soil amendment within two months.

The event is free of charge. However, donations to help Woodlawn develop more programs are greatly appreciated. Please call Woodlawn at 667-8671 or email for details.
