Neighborhood Soil Rebuilders Master Composter Training Course
The Neighborhood Soil Rebuilders training program is a community composter train-the-trainer program with a community service component. This program was developed by the Institute for Local Self-Reliance and ECO City Farms.
The Neighborhood Soil Rebuilders course consists of classroom instruction, supervised hands-on training, implementation of a capstone project and independent projects/community service helping to advance community composting.
This course covers the following topics:
o the small-scale composting process
o vermicomposting (worm composting)
o how to use finished compost
o how to design and build on-site compost systems
o techniques for teaching others about composting
o techniques for engaging community participation
For the capstone project and community service components, participants engage in projects based upon their interests and the needs of the community they are serving. Potential projects might include building and managing compost bins at community gardens, schools, churches, or working at compost demonstration sites.
Successful completion of the Neighborhood Soil Rebuilders course will result in the receipt of a certificate and the option of continuing on to the Neighborhood Soil Rebuilders Master Composter train-the-trainer apprenticeship.
