Do you want to start composting at home?  Join staff from the County's Office of Sustainability for a no-cost two hour workshop in Foster City being offered through the County of San Mateo's Sustainability Academy to learn the basics of starting your own backyard and worm composting system!

Learn how to turn your food scraps, leaves, and plant cuttings into nutrient-rich compost that helps your garden retain moisture, suppress weeds, and prevent soil erosion, while cutting greenhouse gas emissions. It is rewarding to know you are turning what some consider organic waste into a nutrient rich organic material for your garden. There will be a demonstration bin complete with live worms!

Admission is free, but space is limited!

Rebates of $65 for compost/worm bins and $15 for accessories will be distributed to County residents.
