Do you want to waste less and live more sustainably? Join the Boston Compost Certificate Program, partnering with the City of Boston to learn the how's and why's of composting in Boston. This four-module training series is designed to help you learn about the impact of food waste on the environment and its connection to climate change. Each module will include practical knowledge, hands-on activities, and guest speakers. This series will begin with a hands-on introduction to soil science climate change at the Boston Nature Center, followed by a discussion led by the management team from Save That Stufff on how large scale composting can help mitigate the effects of climate change. Participants will experience hands-on composting and gardening techniques at the Urban Farming Institute and with the Boston Food Forest Coalition at the Boston Nature Center. The program will conclude with a celebration ceremony at Mass Audubon's Boston Nature Center.
This program is open only to Boston residents. Four hours of volunteer time is required prior to completion of the course.
