Master Composter Volunteer Program Application 2018 (Winnipeg)
Green Action Centre’s Master Composter Volunteer Program is a program that will give you the confidence to become an effective Green Action Centre compost ambassador by educating others on the value of composting. The first step to becoming a certified Master Composter is taking our hands-on 18-hour train-the-trainer composting course. To complete the certification process, you are required to complete 30 hours of composting related volunteer activities in Manitoba within a two-year period.

Volunteer time is gained by various activities such as helping your family and neighbours start composting, setting up composting programs at a workplace or school, building community compost bins, staffing our display at public events, and other activities that promote composting. As a volunteer you are encouraged to seek out opportunities yourself.

The course will take you through lectures, presentations, and hands-on activities to teach you how to be an effective backyard composter and compost ambassador in your community. Master Composter participants are expected to attend all of the course sessions, set-up and operate a backyard compost or a vermicompost at home or at work
