Learn home composting techniques from Clean Calgary’s Master Composters. Using hands on training you will learn how to use your kitchen and yard waste to produce a valuable soil amendment for your lawn and gardens.

As a graduate Master Composter you will have the leadership skills to teach home composting to friends and neighbours in the community.

No experience necessary, just a willingness to learn.

Generally Master Composters donate back hours doing composting activities in their community. Once trained, Master Composters take on a variety of activities to carry out their time commitment. These depend on the interests and preferences of the Master Composter. Some have arranged composting education sessions for their local churches or other community groups. Some staff booths at gardening shows or give presentations, while others educate their neighbors by example and by discussions over the back fence. We can help with ideas on what might work best for you.

Course will run with a min. of 10 people and a max of 25 people. Please contact Lindsay @ 230-1443 ext 228 or by email at [email protected] to register before February 1, 2008.


The Master Composter course was very informative; a great opportunity to meet people in the community, have fun and learn how to make Calgary a little more environmentally friendly.
