Compost Training Opportunities This Fall!

Dane County UW-Extension, Dane County Public Works, and the City ofcompost hands
Madison Public Works & Streets Division are teaming up to offer two upcoming compost training opportunities. Trainings are available both for those who are interested in learning to training others to make compost, and also those who are just interested in the basics for their own knowledge.

Wednesdays, October 28th & November 4th 6-9 pm
Lussier Family Heritage Center, 3101 Lake Farm Rd, Madison, WI 53711

The two-session Master Composter Certification program is a train-the-trainer format, with certification as a Master Composter upon completion. Participants must be willing to commit to help others learn about composting– perfect for a community garden leader or volunteer who wants to train additional compost-keepers at their garden!

For members of the general public who wish to just increase their personal skills in composting, attend only the first session on October 28th.

• Master Composter Certification (two sessions) – $35
• Compost Education Training (Oct 28th only) – $25

Register by October 21st online on the Eventbrite page or by mailing a check made out to: Dane County Treasurer.
Send to: Master Composter Training, Dane County UWEX, 5201 Fen Oak Drive Rm 138, Madison WI 53718. Please include home address, phone number and email with your payment. Registrations postmarked after October 21st will need a $5 late fee.
