Help us keep our compost composting! An important element of composting is turning – this incorporates oxygen and rearranges materials, giving everything a chance to breakdown. 

Compost Turning Shifts are on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 9am. (If you can’t come at that time, you are welcome to suggest an alternative but please note that in your sign-up so we know when to expect you.)

Wear boots or shoes that can get muddy. Gloves available but we welcome you to bring your own!
