Subject: Turning Kitchen Trash into Treasure
Speaker: Michelle Bradley
There are so many reasons that you should compost, and probably just as many excuses why you do not. Composting turns what might become landfill into a supercharged, nutrient-rich soil additive. Have you tried composting unsuccessfully, think you don’t have time, or space, or don’t want to attract critters? Java’s Compost will explain why composting is the ultimate in recycling, share tips to help you avoid the pitfalls of composting and answer questions to help you master the art of composting.
Java’s Compost is the brainchild of West Orange residents Java & Michelle Bradley. Having successfully managed the composting bins at a Newark charter school, Java convinced Michelle to try composting, and once she saw all of the benefits–enriched soil, healthier plants, less landfill, they made it their mission to inspire others to make composting part of their gardens. Java’s Compost partners with urban farmers growing fresh local produce on vacant lots in Newark, sharing the bounty even more.
