Compost Workshop in Santa Barbara

June 12th, 10:00 am


For Directions, see map below!

Gardeners everywhere know the magic of compost, but did you know you can make compost at home in as little as 10 minutes per week? It’s true, even if you live in an apartment!

Come out to the free workshop on June 12th from 10 until 11:30 a.m. at the Lifescape Gardens at SBCC. The Lifescape Gardens are on the East Campus, behind the stadium on top of the hill. Detailed directions are below.

The County of Santa Barbara’s compost guru will show you all the ins and outs of composting. Find out how it works, how to speed up your compost and what to expect from your home compost.

“Up to 40% of what we throw away every day can be composted” says Jeff Simeon, backyard composting specialist at the County. “I’ll show you how to take those scraps and turn them into black gold for your gardens and house plants.”

County Public Works holds this free event and sells discounted backyard composting bins to help local residents take advantage of this cost-effective way to handle food scraps and other plant based wastes.

More details about the workshop, are available at or by calling Jeff at (805) 882-3618.
