Compost is every gardener¹s best friend. We will teach you how to make compost using either the hot or cold approach as well as cover several different types of composters available. We will also construct a compost bin that is easy to build and affordable. To top the morning off we will also cover vermiculture or the process of composting with worms.

GREENBLATT & SEAY AT THE OLD SCHOOL HOUSE IN AVOCA, NE
Greenblatt & Seay's Schoolhouse Performance Series on Sunday, May 9, at 2:30 PM, features Deborah Greenblatt & Friends in "The Feminist Manifesto". Through the songs and writings of heroic women (and some liberated men) through the centuries, issues of civil rights and stereotypes will be explored.
Championship fiddler, Greenblatt, will be joined by her husband, David Seay, and a small ensemble of Schoolhouse Music Students. The concert will be followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and jam with the performers.
The historic Old Avoca Schoolhouse was built in 1925, and has been the home of the Schoolhouse Performance Series since 1990. Music lessons, workshops, fiddle camps, and field trips are offered by Schoolhouse residents, Greenblatt & Seay, and are available by appointment.
