Composting harnesses the natural process of decomposition to return organic materials like food and yard waste back to the soil as an amendment. Many homes and businesses in Clallam County are reducing the amount of food waste they dispose of by composting on site. View or print our brochure on Composting Basics for information on the benefits and how to’s of this simple, natural process. Visit http://gardening.wsu.edu/compost-and-mulch/ for WSU publications on soils, compost and mulch.
WSU Clallam County Extension is partnering with the Woodcock Demonstration Garden and the 5th Street Community Garden in Port Angeles to install Compost Demonstration Areas in these gardens for the public to view working compost systems and learn more about how to get composting.
