For those still trying to figure out what to do with all those leftover coffee grounds and egg shells, there is help. This weekend Felix Neck and the Polly Hill Arboretum are hosting a compost tea workshop with Ann McGovern, Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection’s consumer waste reduction coordinator.

Wow, that’s a mouthful. Perhaps a bit of composting is in order for Ms. McGovern’s title. Like maybe, Lady Who Turns Garbage into Garden Gold. Yes, that’s more like it.

Anyway, Ms. McGovern will hold a workshop tonight, Oct. 14, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at Polly Hill and tomorrow from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at Felix Neck.

The cost is $5.
