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.
