Offered every Sunday, 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Composting turns organic waste that would end up in a landfill into nutrient-rich soil. Lower your carbon footprint, divert waste, and enhance your garden all with one solution. Join us for a one-hour workshop to get you started and answer questions. (Free with admission)

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.
We also have a virtual version! Visit our Virtual Field Trip page for more information.
