It's a time-tested technique that's mentioned in the Bible and by Shakespeare. But despite being nearly as old as organic matter itself, many home gardeners and landscapers don't compost.
Hwei-Yiing Johnson hopes to change that.
Johnson, an associate professor at Lincoln University's Cooperative Extension, is conducting a trio of composting workshops this spring, with two remaining. They'll be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday and then on May 7. They are held at LU's Alan Busby composting facility, just south of Jefferson City off U.S. 54. The cost is $10.
