The Four Seasons Gardening Program from the University of Illinois Extension continues with a session titled “Making Your Compost Cook – Fixing the Right Recipe.”

If you want to have a higher quality compost and have a finished product in a shorter time, you need to make sure you’ve got the right mix of materials.  Extension Educator, Duane Friend will discuss how to get the right mix by using simple calculations or online recipe calculators.

This program will be offered via a live webinar on Tuesday, September 25th at 1:30 p.m. at the following University of Illinois Extension Offices: Bureau County in Princeton; Marshall-Putnam Counties in Henry; and LaSalle County in Ottawa. This webinar may also be viewed from wherever you have internet access on either Tuesday, September 25th at 1:30 p.m. or Thursday, September 27th at 6:30 p.m. by pre-registering at go.illinois.edu/4seasons_webinars. Recorded videos of these sessions can be viewed following the program at go.illinois.edu/fourseasonsrecordings
