February 8 – May 3 – 2018 Master Composter Training

Posted by  //  January 19, 2018  //  Calendar of Events, Home & Garden

Application Deadline: Monday, January 29
Tompkins County Cooperative Extension, 615 Willow Ave, Ithaca

Ten in-depth classes and volunteer work train Master Composters, an enthusiastic group committed to promoting responsible composting in Tompkins County. The training classes include both compost topics (i.e. bins, science & uses) and education topics (i.e. effective teaching, lesson planning).

Members of the class also work on projects outside of class, and volunteer alongside previously-trained Master Composters. One project is to plan, organize and staff the annual Compost Fair, which will take place this year on Sunday, April 29. After training, Master Composters give back to the community through a wide variety of educational activities, or design their own.

There is a $60 deposit for the training, refunded in full after completion of volunteer hours. More info and applications are available at http://ccetompkins.org/mc or by contacting Adam Michaelides by email acm1@cornell.edu or phone 607-272-2292.
