Composting Workshop: Worm Composting & Composting for Small Spaces

Recycling your food waste reduces greenhouse gas emissions and is fantastic for your garden and house plants. This is a free workshop, registration is required.

Instructor Bio

This workshop will be led by the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE), Santa Clara County’s Composting Education Program (CEP).  The UCCE CEP is a partnership with the cities and county of Santa Clara that seeks to educate our community about composting.
