Home Composting Basics: Home composting is recycling that produces a useful soil conditioner. Basic composting science will be presented with a special focus on useful practices for a high desert climate. A variety of home composting options will be covered. Useful take-home information will help a participant get started and / or improve an already chosen composting method. Prior to the class it may be useful to read our brochures: (1) Composting in the Desert, and (2) Selecting a Method that Works for You.

Our classes include the art, science, materials, methods, and benefits of various composting techniques. Please see individual class descriptions at the bottom of this page. New classes will be added as they are scheduled. Be sure to check again if you don't find a class that works for you. And, details might change so please check for revisions.

Classes are FREE and open to all ages unless otherwise noted. Registration is required for most activities. Welcome!
