Hancock Shaker Village
1843 W Housatonic St - Pittsfield


CET will be joining the fun at Hancock Shaker Village’s 20th Annual Country Fair with a hands on composting display and workshop. As we start thinking about fall clean up and what to do with all those leaves and grass clippings, it’s an ideal time to learn how to turn yard and kitchen “waste” into “black gold” (a term used by the Shaker’s to describe the rich compost they made for their farms and gardens). We’ll have a visual display of how to compost, including indoor composting with red wiggler worms, and an ongoing tutorial demonstration on how to create simple home composting systems with free or very inexpensive materials. And kids love to see, handle and “feed” the worms!
