Backyard Composting

Backyard Composting

Visit Crazy4Compost - Hawaii Conposting and Vermiculture's new Facebook page!



East Hawai`i composting and vermiculture workshops are provided through a generous grant from the County of Hawai`i Department of Environmental Management and are provided regularly around the island. Workshop participants who monitor their waste stream compost, on average, 54% of their household waste!

For more information about how to compost, download the Backyard Composting Brochure.

Please visit our Calendar of Events for upcoming workshops, or simply check back here regularly to find a location and time that is convenient for you. Composting workshops will be posted here as they become available. Workshops are $10 each and include an Earth Machine.

Earth Machines are ready for pick-up by voucher holders at the Kea`au and Waimea Recycling and Reuse Centers.
