Training for Kirkland residents in a sustainable environment
September 18, 2012 · 10:33 AM
Training from the City of Kirkland for those interested in learning how to better sustain the environment will begin this fall. The Master Recycler Composter-East is a 28 hour course scattered throughout seven days in October and November.
Training includes classroom and hands-on education with field trips so that participants can learn how to recycle, compost in backyards, tips on sustainable gardening and resource conservation. After completing the course, graduates will spend 20 hours ‘giving back’ by conducting outreach to their community.
The courses are held Wednesdays Oct. 17, Oct. 24 and Nov. 7 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and Saturdays Oct. 20, Oct. 27, Nov. 3 and Nov. 10 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The program was based on Seattle’s “highly successful” Master Composter/Soil Building program. Master Recycler Composter-East is a partnership of the City of Issaquah and Seattle. Training is open to all Eastside residents.
Applications are due Oct. 3.
