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. To register, click on the date you would like to attend and you will be taken to the appropriate registration page.
