The Spring series of workshops has concluded, and no classes are offered this Summer. Advance registration is now being accepted for Fall 2018 workshops.
Each Basic Composting Workshop will discuss the principles of composting kitchen and yard wastes using backyard bins and vermicomposting (worm composting) techniques. You will learn how composting will improve your soil and aid in the health of your plants and vegetables, as well as reducing organic waste going to the landfill and cutting greenhouse gas emissions. Hands-on workshops are led by Certified Master Composters.
Several of the local jurisdictions offer benefits or discounts on composting equipment to residents who complete a composting workshop. A wealth of composting information and resources is available on the County's composting website at http://compostsantacruzcounty.org.
