What is a Master Composter?

Norfolk volunteersMaster Composters are volunteers who encourage people in their local community to start composting at home and offer support to people who are already home composting.

Becoming a Master Composter is a great way to meet new people, learn valuable skills and benefit from being part of a team that makes a difference.

If you are interested in becoming a Master Composter, please send us your details here or visit norfolk.gov.uk/mastercomposters for more details.

Could you be a Master Composter?

Anyone over the age of 18 can become a Master Composter; you don’t need any composting or volunteer experience, just a willingness to learn.

We’re a friendly bunch and the scheme is now over 10 years old, so we know what we’re doing!

Is there any training?

As a volunteer you will receive free training in home composting and related environmental issues provided by Garden Organic. The initial training is a two day foundation course and is held locally.

Once the training has been completed, you will be expected to spend 30 hours over the following year promoting home composting as a volunteer (i.e. not as part of a paid position).

Our most recent training was held in March 2017, but if you are interested in attending the next one, just let us know by sending us your details here .
