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.


All classes are capped at 8 registrations so that we can adequately provide social distancing. Classes are taught outside at the Gove Compost Demonstration Site.

  • Participants must be prepared to wear masks at all times while at the Gove Compost Demonstration Site.
  • Do not attend one of these classes if you are feeling ill in any way.
  • All participants must register. We are not accepting walk-in attendees.
  • If you cannot make the class, please email us at dirt@dug.org so that we can open your spot to another person.
