Do you have an outdoor compost system and aren’t feeling successful with it? Have you always wanted to compost but want to know more before starting? Are you just curious about composting and how it works? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this is the class for you. We’ll roll up our sleeves and learn about the science and art of successful composting with some classroom learning and hands-on activities. Participants will walk away with the knowledge, resources, and confidence to set up a successful compost system and be a great composter!

Students are asked to bring:

  • Dress for the weather; we’ll spend some time outdoors setting up a working compost system for Marine Village School and MMFS.
