Course Description:

Master Composter Kely Anne Melsted will lead a five week course on the wonders of “black gold” with a special focus on urban composting issus.  Learn how to turn kitchen scraps and other wastes (leaves, yard clippings, etc.) into compost-saving money, reducing waste, and providing valuable soil amendment for indoor and garden plans alike.

Upon completion of the 10-hour course, class participants will have the opportunity to flex their newfound composting skills while giving back to the community, by volunteering at least 10 hours with a community garden/composting site in D.C. Students are required to attend all five classes.
