Home Newsroom “Get the Dirt on Composting” Class with Smart Farm of Barrington

Did you know that 40% of the waste in our landfills is food that can be composted? That’s why Smart Farm of Barrington is inviting all who are interested in learning more to join their “All About Composting” event from 9 to 11 a.m. this Saturday, May 21st.

Smart Farm’s comprehensive class will feature master composters and Mindful Waste co-founders, Mike Kainz, Jennifer Kainz and Renee Blue. They’ll share their knowledge about the benefits and joys of turning garbage into gorgeous soil.

The class will take place at the Smart Farm Hoop House on Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital’s campus at 450 IL Hwy 22 in Barrington.  (The Barn Building on the East Side of the property.) There is no fee to participate, but donations to Smart Farm are greatly appreciated.

Smart Farm LogoCreated in 2008, the Smart Farm is an educational gardening initiative in Barrington. Volunteers tend to their community gardens on the Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital grounds and at Ron Beese Park and give 100% of their produce to local food pantries. Adults, children, and students who participate learn about our agricultural heritage, organic gardening, the slow food movement and best practices for living “green,” sustainable lives.
