This is for anyone who wants to learn about composting. It's also for anyone who realizes they've done gone over the edge into the realm of the Compost Wackos. You'll know when it happens...

Anything on the interests list is up for discussion, and if you think something else should be on there, just let me know...

It'd be great if after joining you would let us know something about your gardening experience(s), and anything else you'd like to throw in.

A few guidelines: (General Good Manners Department)

1. Keep It Civil. No Flames.
2. Please Introduce Yourself.
3. Please use LJ-cuts for photos or very long posts.
4. If you have any questions, ask. There are No Dumb Questions.

This community is intended to be a dialogue, so lurking is counter productive. It's OK if you're working up your nerve, or waiting until you have something to talk about, or just /time/. But if you just are interested in something to read, go to the library.

So join us even if it's nothing more than the occasional bad pun...It's OK. jump in
