How does this program work?

Is my garden eligible?

Any school, church, or community garden can participate in the program.

What can I expect from my compost consultation site visit?

A Composter Recycler ambassador will come out to your garden to provide you resources and advice (where to site a bin, what style of bin will work best, what to compost and not compost, how to manage your compost pile, etc.) to help you set up a successful composting system. The visit will take 30 – 60 minutes. At the end of the visit, we’ll leave you with a packet of resources to guide you and fellow gardeners on your own. You are always welcome to reach out to us with additional questions.

What happens after my site visit?

You will be responsible for obtaining any necessary supplies to construct your composting system and manage your pile(s). However, your ambassador will be available for additional visits to help you set up your system, check up on your progress, ensure things are working properly, and troubleshoot problems.

So how do I get started?

If you are interested in a Composter Recycler ambassador coming to your garden for a consult, please email us at [email protected] and ask to set up a visit. All we need is some basic contact information and a few details on your current composting set up, or lack thereof. This will help us determine what resources we can provide to best meet your needs.
