Free Composting Workshops

free composting workshop
Come learn to compost! Learn how to turn kitchen scraps and yard trimmings into a nutrient-rich soil amendment. Additionally, compost bin sales are held at Griffith Park on the second Friday of each month from 9am to 12pm and at all composting workshops. City of Los Angeles residents can purchase them at a discounted rate of $20 (checks only). Bagged TOPGRO soil amendment is available at the Lopez Canyon and South LA Wetlands  location. All sales are final. Free mulch is available at both locations as well—please bring your own container and shovel. Proof of City of Los Angeles residence is required for discounted sales. 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 for details.
