Fayette County: Free composting workshop Thursday

A free composting workshop will be offered from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Fayette County Extension Office, 1140 Red Mile Place. Residents of Fayette County are eligible for the class.

Participants will learn how to mix organic materials — such as coffee grounds, fruits, bread, vegetables, grass clippings and leaves — and turn them into high-quality compost. They will also receive a small "Grubby" container to help kickstart home-composting efforts.

To pre-register, call (859) 257-5582. For more information, call LexCall at 311 or (859) 425-2255 or visit
