If you're someone who's thought about composting as a way to improve your garden you'll want to hear an expert tell you all about it at Recycle Rutherford's annual meeting at 7:00 o'clock this coming Monday night (4/27/2015) in Room 205 of the Rutherford County Courthouse.

The speaker will be The Compost Company's CEO Edward Wansing. That Ashland City based firm is described on its website as "Middle Tennessee's source for organic waste recycling and humus compost." It diverts tons of organic waste from the landfill and turns it into mulch or soil.


Wansing will speak on "Composting in Tennessee." He is a LEED accredited professional. LEED is an acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is widely used as a rating system for environmentally sound building.

He has been involved with the U.S. Green Building Council for more than eight years and has chaired the Middle Tennessee Chapter of Emerging Professionals. In addition, he has served as an advocate for the Middle Tennessee Chapter of Green Schools.

A member of the Cheatham County Habitat for Humanity board of directors, Wansing volunteers on the Friends of the Cheatham County Bicentennial Trail board of directors. He holds a bachelor of architecture degree from Kansas State University and a master of science in sustainability from Lipscomb University.

The Recycle Rutherford meeting is open to the public without charge. For more information, contact Recycle Rutherford President Glenn Himebaugh at 615-893-8668 or e-mail:
