Composting is no longer just for hippies and enthusiastic gardeners. This Saturday, for those seeking to turn banana peels into healthy soil or simply rid trash bins of hovering fruit flies, check out the composting workshop held at the Eaton Canyon Nature Center. Sponsored by the Pasadena Public Works Department, this free tutorial will teach residents the art of reducing waste while producing nutritious dirt beds for their backyard tomato cages.
High-quality bins can be purchased for $50; reservations are not necessary, but for more information or to purchase a bin call 626.744.7175.
