This weekend, Santa Clara gardeners can learn how to compost with worms and get their hands on some free compost, too.
The City is hosting a composting with worms workshop on Saturday, August 19, and a self-service compost giveaway event on Sunday, August 20.
The composting with worms workshop will be held at the Everett N. “Eddie” Souza Park from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday. Registration is required. Register online or call the “Rot Line” at 408-918-4640.
The compost giveaway will take place at the City’s Corporation Yard from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Sunday. Residents must provide a current utility bill and/or personal identification to verify eligibility. Compost will be self-served and residents must bring their own shovel and sturdy container. Compost will be available while supplies last.
These events are a great opportunity for Mission City gardeners to learn about composting and how to improve the health of their gardens.
