One of the most natural and environmentally sound things you can do around your home is to compost your yard trimmings, grass, and even food scraps. Compost makes a rich soil amendment you can use to grow green lawns and lusher gardens.

You can even join one of our local Master Composter programs! Participants receive invitations to our annual community Garden Parties, home composting assistance, and eight hours of training developed with the University of California Cooperative Extension. Master composter volunteers spend time at community events promoting home composting and recycling.

Don Woo is the JPA’s Master Composter Coordinator. He can be reached by phone at (951) 265-8699 and by e-mail at [email protected].
