Leicestershire Master Composters
The Leicestershire Master Composter programme is delivered in partnership with Leicestershire County Council.
The programme aims to reach any Leicestershire resident of who wants to start composting at home and offer support to people who are already home composting and may be having difficulties or need encouragement.
Volunteers attend a variety of events to promote home composting and give advice to the general public. They also give talks, go into schools, and write articles about composting.
Anyone can be a Master Composter. You do not have to be an expert in composting as Master Composters are trained in 'how to compost' before they start their activities. There are Master Composters from a wide variety of age, backgrounds and cultures. This contributes to the effectiveness of the scheme – Master Composters can reach parts of a community that other compost promoting activities cannot.
