Where's my closest composting demo site?
Stop Food Waste has been running the National Master Composter Training programme since 2009. Master Composters are individuals who are trained on all aspects of home composting and food waste prevention. After receiving this hands on training our volunteers commit some of their time to work within their local communities to promote the Stop Food Waste messages.
Since being piloted in Frenchpark, Co. Roscommon in 2009, almost 500 Master Composters have been trained. During these training programmes 14 main demo sites have been established throughout Ireland. In addition, through this very active network of volunteers, 60 local demo projects are currently in operation around the country. The newest of these are in Monaghan and Tipperary where Master Composter programmes were held during 2014.
