Master Composter Volunteer Program Application and Policy Requirement

Green Action Centre’s Master Composter Volunteer Program is a program that will give you the confidence to become an effective Green Action Centre compost ambassador, to educate others on the value of composting.

The first step to becoming a certified Master Composter is taking our hands-on 18-hour train-the-trainer composting course. Master Composter participants are expected to attend all of the course sessions, and set-up and operate a backyard compost or a vermicompost at home or at work. To complete the certification process, you are required to complete 30 hours of composting related volunteer activities in Manitoba within a two-year period. 

Volunteer time is gained by various activities such as helping your family and neighbours start composting, setting up composting programs at a workplace or school, building community compost bins, staffing our display at public events, delivering workshops/presentations at public events and to different community groups, and other activities that promote composting. As a volunteer you are encouraged to seek out opportunities yourself.
