Who are Master Composters?

Master Composters are volunteers who encourage people in their local community to start composting at home.

What do Master Composters do?

Master Composters promote composting in a variety of ways that are tailoredto their skills, strengths and interests. This could involve offering support andadvice to friends and neighbours, attending events, giving presentations to interested groups or writing articles for local newsletters. Master Composters are encouraged to think of novel ways to raise awareness of the benefits of home composting.

How can I become a Master Composter?

Anyone over the age of 18 can become a Master Composter. You don’t need to be a composter already or have any volunteer or community group experience. As a volunteer you will receive free training from Garden Organic in home composting and related environmental issues. Once you have completed your training you will be expected to spend 30 hours over the following year promoting home composting as a volunteer. Becoming a Master Composter is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and benefit from being part of a team that makes a difference.
