Backyard Compost Workshop

  • Gloucester High School 32 Leslie O Johnson Road Gloucester, MA, 01930 United States (map)

Join Backyard Growers and Black Earth compost for an afternoon of hands-on learning in the wonders of compost!

We will learn a bit about the composting process, then survey different composting techniques with particular focus on backyard compost piles utilizing leaves and other backyard stragglers. 

A $10 donation for attendance is appreciated. Participants in our Backyard and Community Garden Programs are invited to attend free of cost. 

The workshop will take place in an outdoor environment so please dress appropriately for the weather and to get a little dirty. We will meet at the Gloucester High School Farm, which is behind the Science Wing between the school building and the baseball field. Parking is available in the Administrative parking lot or student parking lot. See map below for directions.

Please RSVP on the Eventbrite page to receive event updates. Hope to see you there!
