Learn to Compost!

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, the first several Learn to Backyard Compost 2020 classes have been cancelled, and we may need to modify the 2020 schedule further in the coming weeks. Please continue to check back for updates.

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.

Classes will open for registration one month in advance and you will be able to register below by clicking on the date you want to attend.
