Master Mtn. Composter program applications due by May 12

This year, Colorado Mountain College will host HC3’s 2010 Master Mountain Composter program! Classes begin May 18, and will run until May 27 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-7 p.m. at the CMC Breckenridge Campus (room to be announced). We’ll also have opportunities to participate in hands-on compost pile building and maintenance at the display garden at the High Country Conservation office at 518 Main St. in Frisco. The cost of the MMC Certified program is $50. All proceeds benefit the High Country Conservation Center.

Master Mountain Composter students seeking certification are required to attend all four classes (May 18, 20, 25, 27) and complete 20 volunteer hours for. There is the option to become a Trained Mountain Composter as well, which allows individuals to attend the training sessions without taking part in the community service component. The fee for this option is $75 and priority is given to those choosing to participate in the community outreach portion of the program.

The same application must be filled out for both options and is due on Wednesday, May 12, by 5 p.m. Send or drop off a check for the program fees with your application. State somewhere on the application form if you are applying for the Trained Mountain Composter option.
