Composting will be on lots of our minds this fall as we await the falling of tree leaves. Gardeners Connect has scheduled a class on composting and soil amending on Tuesday evening, Sept. 12, in the Loose Park Garden Center.

This Gardeners U class will be taught by Kathy Hoggard, a member of Gardeners Connect, a Master Gardener of Greater Kansas City and an expert on composting through study and experience.

 Two lectures will be offered with a break between the sessions: “Home Composting for Gardeners”  and “Amending the Soil in Kansas City Gardens.” The class will start at 6 p.m. and end by 8 p.m.

The cost for this class is $15 for Gardeners Connect members and $20 for nonmembers. This includes handouts and treats for the break. The class will be limited to 30 students.

This class complements the Free Speaker Series Oct. 7 lecture, “Growing Healthy Soils for Healthy, Bountiful Plants,” planned at the Discovery Center. Big lectures are nice, but it is easier to ask
questions and talk to the instructor in classes.
