Composting

Solana Center Master Composter program

The Master Composter Program

San Diego Master Composter courses are a unique opportunity to gain a more in-depth understanding of the composting process, and provide insight on sharing this knowledge and passion with others. Through a combination of hands-on activities and in-classroom learning, attendees are trained to become composting ambassadors in their communities. Residents that enroll in Master Composter are asked to complete 30 hours of community service to advance local composting efforts. Graduates play a variety of roles in their communities, including: building compost piles in community gardens, helping students manage their school worm bins, conducting workshops, and serving as composting representatives at community events. No matter what their niche, Master Composters’ grassroots waste diversion projects reflect the diversity of their backgrounds and experiences. Don’t miss the chance to develop your composting knowledge and confidence, and to become a leader and local resource for your community!
