Learn to Compost!

In partnership with Denver Recycles, Denver Urban Gardens offers free classes in composting several times a month from April through October. All public compost classes are hosted at the compost demonstration site at our Gove Community Garden, located at 13th and Colorado in Denver. 

Each compost class is a two-hour, hands-on workshop in the basics of backyard composting. Worm Workshops are special classes that cover vermicomposting techniques. Build-A-Pile Workshops are special classes in which participants help to build an entire compost pile, and receive hands-on experience in incorporating different materials into a compost pile, chopping ingredients, watering, and turning the pile. 

All workshops will be open for registration one month before each class date.

The schedule below is from 2014. The 2015 schedule will be posted on this page as soon as it is available. Thank you for your patience!
