As a requirement of a DEQ grant, the Pavilion is used as an outdoor classroom, linked to an exhibition of compost methods that also provide soil amendment for many of our raised beds. Adjacent to the Pavilion, the visitor can view various structures and signage showing different composting methods and equipment. Worm bins are populated by active “red wiggler” worms which turn garbage and shredded newspaper into castings used to brew compost tea. Master Gardeners actively brew this tea for use in their greenhouse and nursery plants. Two kinds of tumbler composters, black “Darth Vader” composters, a three-stall compost structure and one using cinder blocks all make up the exhibit.
