You’ve heard of compost—but maybe you think it’s too hard, too messy, or too complicated to start at home. Rodale Institute is here to tell you: you can compost like a pro!

This class will teach you how to begin composting effectively in your backyard, quickly identify and troubleshoot compost problems, and harvest and use finished compost in your garden for improving plant growth.

The class is designed for all individuals who wish to begin composting at home but are looking for the right push and ample information to compost effectively. The presentation will take place at Rodale Institute’s compost demonstration site, though brief lectures will be held inside in the case of inclement weather.

Tuition is $60/person. If you are a veteran, you may be eligible to attend educational events for free. Please email veterans@rodaleinstitute.org for details. Can’t train with us in person? View a previously-recorded webinar on this topic here.

Online registration closes at 2 PM EST the day prior to the scheduled date.
