Composting Classes
Produce your own compost out of yard debris or food scraps.
Composting returns nutrients to the soil and reduces the amount of waste you set out at the curb. These free classes are taught by compost experts from Pierce County Public Works.

Classes are recommended for ages 6 to adult.
Children must be accompanied by an adult.
 
arrow Classes are FREE. Please register online, or call (253) 798-4133.
