School Compost Program

Our new Composting Program is perfect for your class, garden club, or sustainability group. Suggested for Grades 3-8. We come to your school and teach the “Whats, Whys, and Hows of Composting”.  If you have a compost bin on site, we also spend time turning the pile together. Visit our School Outreach page for more details, fees, and how to register.
