Master Composter Pilot Workshop: Composting

Sunday, January 30, 10:30 am to 12:30 pm

FREE

The Master Composter course is back this year! In preparation for its return, the NYC Compost Project hosted by Queens Botanical Garden is offering sneak-peek presentations of three Master Composter workshops to the public!

This deep dive into the composting process will discuss managing decomposition. Participants will learn about carbon to nitrogen ratios, thermophilic composting and its benefits, as well as how to solve common problems of small and medium-scale composting. This an onsite event.

This class could count towards your Master Composter Certificate when the course starts later this year. If you take more than one pilot class, only one pilot class can count towards you Master Composter Certificate*. We hope to see you there!
