Go Deeper into Compost

Bins, tools and methods are on display, so you can learn how each performs. Try them out — there's one that is right for you.

During the summer, a Compost Coach is ready to answer your questions, give you a tour, let you try some tools and show you a few tricks. You can even make a mini-worm bin to take home!

Composting in the Classroom

Teachers can request a Vermicomposting Kit for their classroom. You provide the bin and we'll send you some worms with instructions on how to assemble and care for your bin. The kids take it from there. Grades 4 and up. Free, includes only 50 worms.

Composting at the office?

Office Sustainability Teams can request a free one-hour Lunch 'N Learn related to home composting, worm composting, or soil and garden topics.
