Support Family Composting Course

Composting is a great way to get the whole family outdoors, improve science comprehension, and create a sustainable world together. This 3-week course for kids and adults will prepare your "green team" to successfully compost at home.


This course will help kickstart families' shared composting adventure. Through elementary-level lessons, hands-on experience, and engaging activities, Solana Center's staff will teach families everything they need to compost with confidence, all presented in a way that's fun and intuitive for kids. 

Classes will be conducted outside at a family home in Fallbrook. The address will be shared in an information mailer one week before the course starts.

This volunteer listing is for the first event taking place on Saturday, November 6th. The volunteer shifts will run from 11AM to 3PM. The event will take place at Koelkebeck Family Ranch in Fallbrook.
