Resources for Master Composters

One of the fun things about composting is that there is always something new to learn. This page includes a few resources for finding seed materials for your compost heap and also for learning more about composting.

MATERIALS

GREENS AVAILABLE AT APPLE VALLEY COUNTRY CLUB

Master Composters needing greens for their compost pile can stop by the Apple Valley Country Club to pick up cuttings from the golf course.

The Apple Valley Country Club is located on Rancherias at Highway 18. To get to the actual grass clippings, turn south on Rancherias (a traffic light) off of Highway 18. Before the next paved road (Tomahawk), there is a break in the chain/rope fencing on the right that runs along the golf course. That break in the fence is a dirt path for maintenance vehicles that winds around to a fenced maintenance yard area. Take that road past the driving range to the maintenance area. The dumpster containing the grass clippings was just inside the fence to the right.

MAGAZINES

The simple ethic of “waste not, want not” requires that we make the best use of all our resources. Leaves, grass, and other green wastes can be turned into a useful product. These materials don’t belong in a landfill. Throwing these materials in the trash is a true waste of resources.
