Composting in the city can be fun and rewarding, especially when it means your trash won’t be as stinky and your plants will be happy! Stop by Garfield Park Conservatory to have all of your composting questions answered by our knowledgeable compost volunteers. Depending on the weather, they will be outside in the Urban Demonstration Garden or inside with our ‘worm cart’ to talk about different ways to recycle food and garden scraps. Our volunteers will show you techniques we’ve found are helpful to speed up the process for nutrient-rich compost for our plants and show you the various bins we have to help you pick the perfect bin for your needs.
