What is a Master Composter?

Norfolk volunteersMaster Composters are volunteers who encourage people in their local community to start composting at home and offer support to people who are already home composting.

Becoming a Master Composter is a great way to meet new people, learn valuable skills and benefit from being part of a team that makes a difference.

Could you be a Master Composter?

Have you got time to spare? Do you like chatting to people and more importantly are you passionate about composting or keen to learn about it? (No previous composting experience is necessary as full training is given). If the answer is a resounding YES! perhaps you would you like to become a Norfolk Master Composter?

We are currently recruiting for new volunteers, the next two day training course will be held on Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th March 2020, at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse, Gressenhall, Dereham.  The training, delivered by Garden Organic is free and will provide you with all the information you will need to help people start or continue composting at home, from methods of composting, what to put in your compost bin, the mini beasts that you find in your compost, the volunteer experience and much more. As a volunteer we ask that you undertake 30 hours of volunteer work over the following year promoting home compost.

Anyone over the age of 18 can become a Master Composter; you don’t need to be a composter already or have any volunteer or community group experience. So if you are interested in attending the next training course and becoming a Master Composter email mastercomposters@norfolk.gov.uk or call us on 0344 800 8020
