Sustainability at Home: How to feed your soil with compost

The UCOP Sustainability Affinity Group, in partnership with the UCOP Department of Energy and Sustainability, invites the UC community to participate in “Sustainability at Home,” a three-part virtual speaker series event in celebration of Earth Month (April).

Our second event will take place on Thursday, March 25, from 12-1 p.m., with a presentation by three San Mateo County Office of Sustainability Master Composters, Nancy Kruberg, Joe Lees and Kelly Torikai. These experts will discuss how you can be sustainable at home by transforming food scraps and plant trimmings into a nutrient-rich soil amendment for your garden. Learn how to partner with soil food web organisms in both backyard compost piles and vermicompost bins. Come join us for this lunchtime presentation – we’re serving up some compost tea!

About the Sustainability at Home series

Part one of our speaker series was a huge success! Over 120 people Zoomed-in to watch UC Master Gardener Shilpa Thanawala demonstrate how we can be sustainable at home by planting spring herbs and vegetables.

Join us next month for the third and final Sustainability at Home presentation! UCOP Director of Sustainability Matthew St. Clair will get our Earth Month celebration started, followed by a UC Master Food Preserver presentation on canning, pickling and dehydration.
