Workshops and Classes

Due to current budget deficits, the County of Santa Cruz has suspended funding for the Home Composting Program.  County sponsored workshops, Master Composter trainings, and information booths will no longer be offered.

As a convenience to the public, composting workshops and classes offered by other entities will be posted on this site as they are known. The County of Santa Cruz makes no claims, guarantees or endorsements regarding any events listed here.
