Leicestershire Master Composters
The Leicestershire Master Composter programme is delivered in partnership with the Leicestershire Waste Partnership at Leicestershire County Council. Master Composters have been promoting home composting to Leicestershire residents since 2008.
The programme aims to reach any Leicestershire resident who wants to start composting at home and offer support to people who are already home composting and may be having difficulties or need encouragement.
There are over 60 Master Composters in the county who attend a variety of events to promote home composting and give advice to the general public. They also give talks, go into schools, advise community gardens, maintain compost display areas and write their own blogs and websites.
Anyone can be a Master Composter. You do not have to be an expert in composting as Master Composters are trained in 'how to compost' before they start their activities. There are Master Composters from a wide variety of age, background and culture. This contributes to the effectiveness of the scheme – Master Composters can reach parts of a community that other compost promoting activities cannot.
