EUGENE, Ore. -- Now's your big chance to get your hands dirty while going green in Eugene this weekend. The Master Gardeners Program is hosting a composting workshop in the Santa Clara community garden at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church.

The free class will teach people how to compost using donated food waste from FOOD for Lane County. Peter Thurston with the Master Garden Program says it's nice to be able to recycle the waste instead of sending it to a landfill.

"Some of the items for the pantry get a little old, so we use them instead of just having them get tossed out, we put them into the compost pile."

The workshop starts at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11.
