Program Description

Event Details

Almost 25% of a typical household’s waste can be recycled right in our own backyards. Backyard and community composting matter more than ever to remove unnecessary materials from the trash stream and out of incinerators and landfills.  It is easy to begin and maintain home composting without special equipment or substantial financial investment.  Even apartment dwellers can compost! There is bound to be a composting method that meets your needs.

She holds a B.S. in biology from Yale College, a Master of Forest Science degree from Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and five information security certifications. Gail and her husband Dan Reynolds co-own Reynolds Forestry Services LLC.
