In 2017, the City of Carlsbad and The Ecology Center have partnered to provide free hands-on composting workshops and discounted composting tools exclusively to Carlsbad residents.

Healthy soil is a living, breathing community of organisms interacting to provide a wide variety of benefits to their ecosystems. One of the easiest methods for building and maintaining healthy soil is by using compost and compost teas that you can make at home.

Topics covered in this interactive class:

  • Simple solutions to reduce and potentially eliminate waste streams from our homes and daily routines
  • The basic science of compost and composting practice
  • Step by step hands-on composting techniques

Join us for this special workshop, and get started making and using compost at home! You will also have the opportunity to purchase discounted composting bins while supplies last. 


Lucian Toma has a Master’s Degree in Sustainable Development, an internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certification, and leads Public Programs and Eco-Garden Design Services for The Ecology Center. He has been composting since the age of 5.
