Event Description: 

The five-week Master Composter course provides training in the art and science of composting.

Learn the art and science of composting!

  • Minimize your carbon footprint by keeping food and yard waste out of the landfill, helping reduce harmful methane gas emissions.

  • Use this "waste" to create a nutrient rich amendment for your garden. Compost use reduces the need for synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. 

  • Reduce water use and increase water retention. Compost increases your soil's water holding capacity by up to 7 times and retains water for up to 7 days.

  • Work with a team to build, maintain and troubleshoot a traditional compost pile. Course will also cover composting with worms (vermicomposting) and compost fermentation (Bokashi).
