Backyard Composting Class

Join us for a fun introduction to composting yard materials and food scraps at home!

This class will provide an overview of the composting process, different methods of composting, and the benefits that different composting systems provide to your garden. This class will also provide step-by-step instructions on making your own backyard composting bin, worm bin and food digester!  A particular emphasis will be placed on maintaining an active compost pile, avoiding pests and finding the right composting system to fit your household’s needs.

After the class, there will be a raffle for a free compost bin, worm compost, and other composting accessories for attendees who are Davis residents. Winners will be chosen after the class. Must be present to win.

While the class is open to anyone wishing to learn more about composting, Davis residents who attend the class can sign up to receive a starter set of composting worms for $5, and residents in single-family homes can purchase a backyard compost bin for $10.

For more information or to register, please contact the Public Works Department, or call (530) 757-5686.
