Live in Leicestershire? Your chance to become a Master Composter


By drc726


I saw this today in ‘Organic Matters’ August news letter and thought it might be of interest:
Live in Leicestershire? Your chance to become a Master Composter
Would you like to become an expert in composting and raise awareness of its benefits to the community?

We are looking to recruit and train people to become Master Composter Volunteers.

Why get involved?

· Become a composting expert, help the environment and save money

· Help residents in your community to reduce the amount of organic waste that goes to landfill

· Meet new people, make new friends and get involved with your local community

· Opportunity to gain work experience in waste and environmental topics – this could include; attending events/ visiting schools and/ or community groups and giving demonstrations/ talks or writing articles.

For more information on the scheme please call John Levison on 0116 305 6376 or email

The closing date for applications is Friday 31st August 2012

They have these courses in California and my daughter is a " master composter". She has spoken to a class of children in school and they were spellbound.
Very good idea.

Thats great Hank and glad it was of interest, I would have like to do it as I make my own compost (hot) and leaf mould (cold) and yesterday put 6 barrow loads of compost around my garden, very pleasing.
