Spring Training for Composters

Sign up now for spring offerings in our education series.

The Milwaukee County UW-Extension and Kompost Kids are pleased to offer Master Composter Volunteer Training. This program is a statewide educational program developed and coordinated through the UW-Extension Solid & Hazardous Waste Education Center (SHWEC). The objective of the Master Composter program is to train individuals who want to become Certified Master Composters and share their knowledge of home composting with others by organizing and teaching composting workshops and offering demonstrations in their communities. (April 12, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Havenwoods Environmental Education Center, Fee: $30). Download registration form here.

Milwaukee County UW‐Extension and Kompost Kids will also present a Home Composting Workshop. Learn the ins and outs of composting organic wastes – from the yard, garden, and even kitchen peelings. Answer the questions of what you should and should not put in the compost. Find out where to put it in your yard, how large it needs to be, and what to do to care for it. (April 12, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Havenwoods Environmental Education Center, Fee: $7 per household). Download registration form here.

Note to all Dirt Day 2014 applicants: Either of the above courses will fulfill the compost training requirement to maintain eligibility for the compost donation. If you can’t make the official training opportunities, please come to one of our regular pile turnings at our Demonstration Site at Lincoln and Ward in Bay View any Saturday at 12 p.m. before May 1. Be sure to announce your presence and your reason for being there to a Kompost Kids representative so that accurate records can be kept. Proof of compost training completion is due by May 1.
