Master Composter Volunteer Training Course

Bernalillo County Extension Master Composters

Master composter training is a focused "train-the-trainer" program which prepares individuals to become educators in a variety of composting methods for the community. It is not necessary to be a resident of Bernalillo County to take the training.

The training originally scheduled for April 2020 was cancelled due to covid. There might possibly be a training in the Fall of 2021 or Spring of 2022. We will post the date for the next training as soon as it is scheduled.

Details will be added a few months before the training begins. As details are finalized, you will find links below with the info you'll need.

The most recent master composter training was held in the spring of 2019. To learn more about the training, feel free to look at details for the spring 2019 training. The next training will be similar but some details might change.
