Who’s ready to get dirty!? Seattle Tilth is accepting applications for spring Master Composter training.

Seattle Tilth offers the Master Composter / Soil Builder program in partnership with Seattle Public Utilities to train community members to become compost educators. Community members participate in 28 hours of classroom learning, hands-on practice and field trips. Learn how to compost while learning about soil science, natural yard care and recycling!

Training includes eight sessions during four weeks starting on Tuesday, March 24 in Wallingford (4649 Sunnyside Ave N). After the training, Master Composters contribute 35 hours of volunteer outreach teaching practical techniques to other community members. Volunteers work on projects of their own choosing – at schools, churches, community centers, businesses and community gardens.

Applications are due March 14. Bilingual applicants are encouraged to apply. For more information, go to: Seattle Tilth.
