Backyard Composting Basics Workshop - County of San Diego

 Registration is closed for this event
Want to learn how you can improve the quality of your soil, reduce waste and air pollution, while saving energy, money, and water? Learn how to compost in your backyard!



Join Solana Center for this 2-hour presentation, at the Water Conservation Garden, where you will learn the basics of traditional backyard composting. Using trial-tested advice and interactive demonstrations, our experienced educators will teach you all you need to know to get started with a bin that fits your needs and lifestyle.

This workshop will be held in-person and outdoors. We ask that all attendees follow current public health guidelines to protect themselves and others from the spread of Covid-19, including wearing a mask if you have not been vaccinated.

Priority registration is offered to residents of unincorporated County. You can confirm your residency by entering your address here. If your jurisdiction boundary result is "S.D. County," you are an unincorporated resident who will receive priority registration. All other registrants will be placed on a waitlist initially and accepted into the workshop pending available space. Please look for a notification 1 - 2 weeks before workshop date. 

In this workshop, we will cover the following

  • What is composting and why it is so important
  • What tools and materials you'll need
  • Which items are compostable and which are not
  • Building and maintaining a compost pile

One lucky attendee will WIN a free raffle prize!
