Welcome to the Composting Education Program. The UCCE CEP is a partnership with the Cities and County of Santa Clara that seeks to educate our community about composting. In addition to a Master Composter training course, the UCCE CEP offers Community Classes throughout the county as well as technical resources.

Master Composters teach residents how to build compost piles and worm bins, then how to apply the resulting material in their landscapes and gardens. Master Composter volunteers also provide presentations to local schools, community organizations and events.

We are always looking for volunteers to be part of our Community Composting Demonstration site at Martial Cottle Park. Contact the Rotline at 408-918-4640 and leave your name, phone number and email address if you are interested in being a Compost Volunteer.  We will contact your when we have a work day scheduled.
