Vivian Bowden, a master gardener with the University of Florida/Volusia County Extension, will explain how to recycle kitchen waste into rich fertilizer at 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 14, at the Ormond Beach Regional Library, 30 S. Beach St.
Composting enriches soil, helping retain moisture and suppress plant diseases and pests. It also reduces the need for chemical fertilizers and encourages the production of beneficial bacteria and fungi that break down organic matter to create humus, a rich nutrient-filled material.
Her free presentation is part of the library’s Casual Gardening Series. Reservations are not required. For more information, call the library at 386-676-4191, option 4.
