I was invited to speak about composting at the Echo Hills home owners association meeting last Saturday. We met at Julia’s Coffee and Used Books on N. Wendover Road in Charlotte (which is a division of Habitat for Humanity Charlotte). It was cold and rainy outside but nice and warm inside and smelled delicious from the freshly brewed coffee.
There were about 15-20 people present from the Echo Hills neighborhood and we had a great time talking about composting as I showed them my Basic Backyard Composting Presentation. We mostly discussed traditional composting methods using a bin or tumbler, but something interesting happened at the end of my presentation when the worm composting method was brought up! I got the normal disgusted looks from the crowd but also a lot of genuine interest from several people whose faces lit up and asked really good questions. It was great and I was happy to answer their questions! Hopefully I was able to motivate someone to start their own compost pile, whether bin, tumbler or worm. Note to self: Always bring the worm bin to compost demonstrations and presentations…the worms are always the stars of the show.
Thank you Lori and Adam for inviting me!
I was not able to check out the used books section while I was there, so I have to make sure to stop the next time I drive by.
