Master Recycler Composter Eastside 2013
Eastsiders, if you care about the environment and your community and are looking for an opportunity to learn and to get involved, read on!
MRC Eastside is a volunteer training and outreach program to educate Eastside residents about recycling, backyard composting, organic gardening concepts and resource conservation. Participants gain knowledge, skills and tools to teach their friends, neighbors and community members.
Based on Seattle's highly successful Master Composter / Soil Builder program, MRC Eastside offers 28 hours of education including classroom learning, hands-on experience and field trips. Learn soil science concepts, Integrated Pest Management techniques, recycling ins-and-outs and how to make compost from food and yard waste. We will take a fascinating field trip to a compost facility.
After completing the course, graduates contribute 20 hours offering compost and recycling education to their communities. Participants have a chance to develop their own projects that could be compost, recycling education or Integrated Pest Management in schools, churches, community centers or gardens – the sky’s the limit! MRC Eastside is a partnership of the City of Issaquah and Seattle Tilth.
