Dirty Talk

Fancy-dancy 3-bin compost bin

You know you want to. Don’t hesitate any longer! Start making that dirty, dirty dirt! You know what I’m talking about. That’s right, baby. That thing that makes every girl smile: COMPOSTING!

Making dirt ain’t easy. You can’t just throw your scraps in a pile out your back door (unless you love rats). Indeed, there’s a science to the madness. It’s not rocket science, but an art nonetheless. 

Never fear! Help is near. Attend one of the following seminars, brought to you by the sexy City of Sacramento Department of Utilities Solid Waste Services, and you, too, will be making sweet dirt in no time.

You will also have the opportunity to put your fresh knowledge to use with a new, discounted Biostack compost bin, sold at each seminar for $65 (regular price: $129). If you haven’t been out shopping for a compost bin lately, this is a steal! My neighbor purchased hers for the bargain price of $300. My husband built my fancy-dancy 3-bin system with raw materials from the hardware store for $500. $65? You can’t beat that!

At each seminar, you’ll talk more than dirt. You’ll also learn about gardening basics, from cover crops to vegetable gardens. And the price of dirt love? Each seminar is FREE!

  1. You can also do the city’s course online through the utilities website, then print your final quiz and take it in for a discounted composter. I love my biostack, seriously!
