Did you know that 24-percent of the municipal solid waste stream is food and yard waste? A great way to reduce your landfill contribution and create your own nutrient rich soil is home composting.
We are offering FREE home composters and workshops to residents of the City of Orlando through Mayor Buddy Dyer’s Green Works initiative.
See our backyard composting handbook below for more information about the benefits of composting and how to get started with your own composting bin!

The City of Orlando and the Orange County IFAS Extension Office are partnering to bring you free composting workshops.
There are currently no workshops scheduled. Please check back later for updates.

- Parramore Community Garden
654 West Robinson Street
- Colonialtown North Community Garden
