Free Composting Workshops

Workshops Temporarily Cancelled Until Further Notice

free composting workshop
As a measure of caution in relation to the containment of the COVID-19 Virus, we are suspending our monthly composting workshops and bin sales at all three locations until further notice. We have also decided to cancel our six annual Open House events.


These decisions were difficult, but the health and safety of our staff and attendees is our primary concern. We hope to resume the workshops soon, and we look forward to next year's Open Houses.

In gratitude for your continued understanding and support, we are filming multiple home composting/urban gardening video series so you may continue to hone your skills. You can view them here:


Victory Gardens - Part 1
Victory Gardens - Part 2
Victory Gardens - Part 3

Home Composting - Part 1
Home Composting - Part 2
Home Composting Part 3
Home Composting Part 4

Drought tolerant gardens and succulents - coming soon!



Come learn to compost!  We will teach you how to turn kitchen scraps and yard trimmings into a nutrient-rich soil amendment. Compost bins, worm bins, and mulch are available all composting workshops, while supplies last. City of Los Angeles residents can purchase compost bins them at a discounted rate of $20. All sales are final. Bagged TOPGRO soil amendment is available at the Lopez Canyon and South LA Wetlands locations. Free mulch is available at both locations as well—please bring your own container and shovel. Please note that events may be cancelled in the event of inclement weather; feel free to call in advance.

At the Lopez Canyon and South LA Wetlands locations, a smart gardening workshop begins immediately following the home composting workshop. There is no cost to attend. Please view the flyer in English and in Spanish.
