The City of Davis is offering a free composting class at 6:00 p.m. on January 23 in the Sequoia Room at the Hallmark Inn, 110 F Street. In addition to backyard composting and worm composting, these classes will place a particular emphasis on simple, pest-free methods of composting food scraps. After attending a class, Davis residents can sign up to receive a starter set of composting worms for $5, and residents in single-family homes can receive a backyard compost bin for $10. Class attendees that live in Davis can enter to win a free Home Composter backyard compost bin. To register for the class, call the Public Works Department at 757-5686 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
