Join us at Solana Center for Environmental Innovation for a composting workshop series on our home turf!
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. The course will also cover composting with worms (vermicomposting) and compost fermentation (Bokashi).
The course includes lectures, demonstrations, and a field trip. Master Composter certification requires the attendance of all 5 classes, as well as 30 volunteer hours of related community service.
