Master Composters are community volunteers who promote food & garden waste prevention and encourage people to compost at home. All of this saves money while improving our environment.
The Stop Food Waste Campaign are looking for 40 dedicated volunteers to participate in the next Master Composter Training course which will be held at the Fettercairn Community Centre in Tallaght. International home composting expert, Craig Benton, known as Doctor Compost, will lead an action packed and exciting hands-on training programme over five evening workshops and three weekend field days.
After the training, volunteers are expected to contribute at least 30 hours of time within the following year to work within your community to promote the messages of the programme.
