Join the over 600 individuals who have attended Irving’s award-winning Master Composter Training Course. This 16-hour course is designed to give students an in-depth look at composting including the benefits and challenges. Additionally, students will be introduced to vermi-composting (composting with worms), as well as Bokashi composting. Some of the many other aspects of the Master Composter Training Course includes hands-on bin building, touring Irving’s Hunter Ferrell Landfill, and studying the biology aspect of composting under the microscope at North Lake College. All graduates of the course will receive training books, backyard compost bin, worm bin, t-shirt and certificate. Students are expected to give 40 hours of volunteer time back to the community over a 12-month period to help further environmental education.
