Shropshire Master Composters

Shropshire Master Composters is a new programme in partnership with Veolia & Shropshire Council and we are currently recruiting volunteers to become Master Composters to support us in delivering workshops at schools, talks to local groups and giving advice at events.

Your training will include:

  • Free compost training - you don’t need to be an expert.
  • Ongoing volunteer support and local network of like-minded volunteers.
  • Spread the compost message in your local community and encourage more people to start composting at home.
  • Master Composters generally undertake around 30 hours of volunteering each year

Training is free and covers the basic elements of home composting and related environmental issues.

Training will take place on Saturday 28th September 2019 at Shropshire Wildlife Trust’s The Cut Visitor Centre, Shrewsbury, 193 Abbey Foregate, SY2 6AH
