    Everything you need to get started. Teacher was well prepared with slides, handouts, and his personal experience composting. Would recommend this class to anyone starting out. He will steer you around mistakes and set you up with a system that works.

Jim has conducted composting workshops throughout the state of Utah. He originally learned the method from the inventor of the square foot garden over 15 years ago when the term "sustainability" and "organic" we're just being used. The techniques work with any gardening system you might be using but are particularly well adapted to the square foot garden. Jim will show you how easy it is to produce a compost far superior to anything you can buy commercially. He's been doing it successfully for 15 years and his results speak for themself.
