Become a Texas Master Composter

Euless Senior Center, 300 W. Midway Dr.

[Hands Holding Compost]Composting is nature’s way of recycling organic matter and returning it to the earth. It’s great for your yard and saves you money on water, fertilizer and chemicals. This course gives students an in-depth look at composting, its benefits and its challenges. Along with an introduction to vermi-composting (worms), students will learn about hands-on bin building and the biology of composting.

Participants receive a free composting thermometer at the end of the class, in addition to books and workshop materials for their personal use. Students are expected to provide 20 hours of volunteer time back to the community over a year to help further environmental education. The first 30 students completing their 20 hours of volunteer time will receive a free backyard composting bin.

The registration deadline is January 5. Please bring a brown bag lunch. For more information and to register, contact Betsy Deck at 817-685-1821.

Prepared in cooperation with the North Central Texas Council of Governments through funding from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
