    Everything about this class was well thought out and executed. I really enjoyed learning a new set of skills and having something to show for it. Now I'm inspired to try out a few projects at home!

    I've been wanting to start composting at home for a while and this seemed like an interesting project. This class was heavy on teamwork and required little technical skill with tools. The instructor demonstrated all steps in advance and was good about discussing safety tips. The Gateway Greening educator started the class with a presentation about best practices for home composting and gave very good handouts. I recommend this class for anyone who has been wanting a project and has interest in home composting.
