A Master Composter workshop will be held this fall in Madison to provide training for anyone who wishes to teach others about home composting, including backyard composting and vermicomposting. Dane County Extension and the City of Madison are sponsoring this training program in order to encourage broader adoption of composting by residents.

The two-part training will take place at the Lyman F. Anderson Center, 5201 Fen Oak Drive, Madison, on the Mondays of Oct. 28 and Nov. 4 from 6 to 9 p.m.

The Master Composting program is a two-part workshop and a home study course, designed specifically to provide basic knowledge, skills and tools for people who want to teach others about composting. Participants need to attend both sessions to be certified as Master Composters. The general public can attend the first part of the workshop on Oct. 28 to learn about home composting.

Early registration ends on Oct. 21; the registration deadline is Oct. 27.
