2017 Workshop Schedule Coming in February
Two types of workshop will again be offered—backyard composting and worm composting.
Backyard composting workshop attendees will learn the basics of backyard composting, including tools, techniques, and bin types. Turn your yard and kitchen scraps into rich compost to use as a soil amendment or garden mulch. Learn More About Backyard Composting
Participants can choose one of the following at the end of the two hour class:
- Earth Machine bin for backyard composting
- Soil Saver bin for backyard composting
- $30 mail-in rebate towards the purchase of worm composting bin
- $30 mail-in rebate towards the purchase of a mulching lawnmower or lawnmower retrofit—Learn More About Grasscycling
Worm composting (vermiposting) focuses on food scraps and is often the best option for those with limited space and minimal or no yardwaste. Participants will assemble a working worm bin to take home. Learn More About Worm Composting
Backyard composting bins and mail-in rebates are available at backyard composting workshops only. Backyard composting bins are $20 (cash or check only). All worm workshop participants will assemble a no-cost worm bin to take home. Limit one bin or rebate per household (while supplies last). Bin or rebate for Napa County residents only.
