Home composting is a straightforward way to recycle kitchen and yard leftovers into an excellent desert garden soil amendment. Join us for a series of (more or less) quarterly hands-on workshops at the beautiful and historic Gutiérrez-Hubbell House as we demystify composting and explore a variety of approaches suitable to different scales and situations. The workshops will present a variety of home composting methods. Each composting setup will remain in place so that participants may stop by and take a look at the on-going composting demonstration zone. You will be able to observe composting in action.

Where: Workshops will be held at the Gutiérrez-Hubbell House, 6029 Isleta Boulevard SW. (Map below.)

Cost and Registration: Workshops are FREE, but registration is required.

Schedule: There are no workshops currently on the calendar at this time. Please check back. We plan to add more workshops.

To see the classes held in the past in the series see our past classes archive.

The series is a collaboration of the Hubbell House Alliance and staff, the Bernalillo County Open Space Program, and the Bernalillo County Extension Master Composters.
