Become a Composting Champion of the World

Are you an amateur composter and ready to step into the championship ring?

HamiltonCounty Recycling and Solid Waste District and the Civic Garden Center of Greater Cincinnati join forces to provide you with three evenings of intensive training. Learn about a wide array of topics including: Why we compost, reducing waste, saving our soil, growing healthy plants, soil biology, composting methods and finally, composting in small spaces: vermicomposting and Bokashi.

Each class begins at 6:00 p.m. and ends at 8:30 p.m., on three Wednesdays, September 4, 11, and 18, 2013. The classes are free of charge. For a nominal fee, students may cut and take home a wire compost bin, and have the option to make a vermicomposting system or Bokashi bin. 

Class size is limited – please register by calling (513) 221-0981 x 18 or email

You’ll be floating like a butterfly, and stinging like a bee with the wealth of information you’ll be able to share with adoring fans.
