FREE Backyard Composting Classes


The City of Modesto, in partnership with Modesto Junior College Community Education, is sponsoring FREE backyard composting classes this fall for residents of Modesto. Non-Modesto residents are also welcome to attend but there will be a $35.00 tuition cost for those living outside the city. The two fall classes will be held on:

 

  • Saturday, September 7, 2013 from 10:00am-12:00pm
  • Tuesday, October 29, 2013 from 6:30pm-8:30pm

 

*Advanced registration is required by calling 575-6063.

 

Those attending and completing the class will be given a $5.00 coupon towards the purchase of a City of Modesto compost bin. The class objective is to make information available on backyard composting, waste reduction/minimization, waste efficient yard care and vermicomposting. With fall just around the corner, this is an excellent opportunity to learn how to make compost from your garbage waste and grow amazing fruits, vegetables and flowers in your own garden!

Happy Composting!
