2018 Master Composter Course: Registration is Open!
I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful Vermont summer we are having! We are announcing that registration is now open for the 2018 Master Composter Course! This course is provided in collaboration with the Agency of Natural Resources through grant funding, and the self-funded UVM Extension Master Gardener Program. Please see the details below where you will find the link to the course registration website.
With Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law (Act 148) ban of disposal of food scraps in landfills by 2020, courses such as this play an important role in educating communities on the need for composting. In fact, one of the class lectures is specific to learning more about this law.
Best regards, Lisa
