Tour of Elements Mountain Compost

March 15 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Don’t miss your chance to check out the composting facility at Elements Mountain Compost (EMC). EMC is dedicated to reducing waste and creating high quality compost. EMC will discuss the art and science of composting: from backyard bins to commercial facilities, find out how organic recycling reduces waste and greenhouse gas emissions. Participants will learn about local composting options for residents, businesses and events plus tips for compost application in yards and gardens. Participants of the tour will get a free sample bag of compost and a dollar off each bag of compost they purchase at the event.

Cost: $10 for GARNA members, $20 for non-members. This cost includes the compost lecture Thursday March 12. Fees support important stewardship initiatives in the Upper Arkansas Valley. If special assistance is required, please call the GARNA office a few days in advance so accommodations can be made. Contact the GARNA office at 719-539-5106 or email
