If composting and recycling interest you, you want a sustainable future, and you want to be part of a great community, consider becoming a Master Composter / Recycler. The volunteer training provides you with the tools and knowledge to build a hot compost pile, tend a worm bin, and reduce waste.
Master Composter / Recyclers attend an annual FREE 10-session course that explores: backyard composting, vermicomposting, recycling, sustainable living, green cleaning, and more. Participants then share what they learn with the Clark County community. Master Composter / Recyclers “payback” their training with community service hours. They represent the program at community events such as fairs and farmers markets; teach and host workshops and lectures; grow redworms for wormshops; maintain compost demonstration sites; and share their knowledge with neighbors and community groups.
Applications are being accepted now for the 2018 MCR training. Classes are scheduled for Wednesday evenings, January 24 – March 28, 2018. If you are interested in getting more hands on experience with composting and recycling, check out our workshops.
