Mid-Scale Compost Build Workshop

 Registration is closed for this event

Are you already familiar with the basics of composting and are ready to take your knowledge to the next level? Join Solana Center and Hidden Resources and get the scoop on mid-scale composting!


This workshop does NOT address typical residential composting or large-scale commercial composting. It is intended for those systems that fall in between: farms, parks, community gardens, schools, businesses, etc.

If you're not already familiar with composting, check out one of Solana Center's free composting workshops

During this event at beautiful Terra Madre Gardens in Escondido, participants will construct and start up a compost pile. We will incorporate on-site materials such as vegetable scraps, weeds, wood chips, chicken manure, and straw, and discuss site selection and other compost concerns (like water, pests, and odors.) As a bonus, Terra Madre will fire up their outdoor pizza oven and prepare some pizzas with garden-grown veggies!

Terra Madre Gardens is run by farmer David Solomon and his family, and it has been a part of the local garden movement for over a decade. The farm supplies organic produce to Stone Brewery restaurant and other local sourcing eateries. They are dedicated to creating a place to grow ideas to help promote home gardening, self-healing, healthy eating, exercise, artistic expression and happy living.
