Event Details


Composting Demonstration Site Bin Build – Surprise Farm Retreat Center

Join us in a compost bin build at the organically certified Surprise Farm Retreat Center (SFRC) and learn about composting at the mid-scale level with an aerated static pile.

Whistle while you work — and learn!

This is a great opportunity to expand your composting repertoire with the aerated static pile or ASP. *

We’ll start off with a short lecture explaining the process, and then we’ll jump right into an actual compost pile build on-site at an organic farm in Ramona. Nestled in the Laguna foothills, Surprise Farm Retreat Center (SFRC) is an educational organization offering workshops, seminars, and discussion groups on the relationships between nature, culture, community, self, and well-being. Check out their website!

Attendees should plan on getting dirty, wear closed-toe shoes, and ideally be comfortable lifting 25-35 pounds of materials (if not, we can find other activities for you to do).

Thursday June 23, 2022 8:00 – 11:00 am (starting early to beat the heat!)
