This 16-hour course is designed to give students an in-depth look at composting, including its benefits and challenges. Additionally, students will be introduced to vermi-composting (composting with worms), as well as Bokashi composting. Some of the other elements of this course include hands-on bin building, a tour of Irving’s Hunter Ferrell Landfill and studying the biology of composting under the microscope at North Lake College. All graduates of the course will receive training books, a backyard composting bin, worm bin, T-shirts and a certificate. Students are expected to provide 40 hours of volunteer time back to the community over a 12-month period to help further environmental education.
