The Master Composter Course is conducted twice a year and is funded by municipalities in the San Diego region. The course is conducted in the classroom as well as at a compost demonstration site. It is hands on and fast paced; participants must attend all sessions. Optional field trips will be scheduled at the first class session.
In exchange for this training, course participants agree to give back 30 hours of volunteer service with the Solana Center in the form of educational outreach, such as assisting with workshops and outreach booths at community events, maintaining compost demonstration sites, and helping with school programs.
