Home Composting Workshops

The Addison County Solid Waste Management District will be hosting FREE backyard composting workshops throughout the year! Join us for an hour long workshop on how to turn your household food waste into compost for your garden.  

Each workshop will cover the benefits of composting, why food scraps should be diverted from the landfill, how to set up and manage a pile, uses for compost, and troubleshooting tips. We'll share resources and have compost bins and kitchen collectors for sale. The workshop runs for about an hour. Space is limited, so registration is required. To register, email ollie@ or call us at (802) 388-2333. 

2019 Workshop Schedule

We are currently working on a summer and fall composting workshop schedule. Check back soon for dates!
