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.

The course covers the following:

  • Traditional composting
  • Building, maintaining, and troubleshooting a compost pile
  • Vermicomposting
  • Bokashi fermentation
  • The microbiology of composting
