Class - Composting Basics

Saturday, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.

Join Shawnee Town Museum and Parks and Recreation staff as we introduce you to starting your own compost.  No lawn required!  While composting may be a "hot" topic today, it was very much an important part of life on any Shawnee farm or garden in the 1920's.  Manure, kitchen and yard waste, all combine to create a wonderfully nutrient rich mixture to add to flower beds, vegetable patches, and potted plants.  This class aims to teach what elements are needed to start and maintain a compost in order to reap the benefits of this "black gold".  No previous gardening experience required.


Place:  Shawnee Town farmstead, enter through Visitors Center, 11501 W. 57th St.

Class fee:  $10, Registration required.  Phone (913) 248-2360
