Recap: Community Compost Event and Education

Jim took us through the different steps involved in the composting process after giving us a tour of Tualatin’s Community Garden.

Teamwork made the composting process more efficient and fun!

After learning how to make compost tea, we ended the morning by taking a look at the multitude of saplings starting their journey of growth to become producing plants that will give back to our community.

Big thank you to Jim and everyone who participated!
