SHOP TALK: Building a Compost Pile

Welcome back to Shop Talk here at The Featherweight Shop! We love our local chit chat with staff, gathering around the dinette table so-to-speak (because that is what we have!) and sharing with one another. In these segments, we exchange patterns, recipes, organizational ideas, history quips, gardening tips, crafty projects, and smiles about learning an old-fashioned way of doing things. Shop Talk is the fun tidbits of news!

"Backyard composting is the intentional and managed decomposition of organic materials for the production of compost, that magical soil enhancer that is fundamental to good gardening." ~ The Garden of Oz

Growing a backyard vegetable garden can be one of the most gratifying experiences one can have! Creating food from the earth, trying new tips and tricks season after season to create the most vibrant and flavorful veggies will inevitably lead you to composting. Compost is known as "Black Gold" in the gardening community for its rich nutrients and benefits to the vegetables and surrounding soil. 
The Garden of Oz created an incredible learning resource and tutorial for education on composting, as well as how to create it on your own property!
