Date: 11 Oct 2022 | posted in: Composting, waste - composting, Waste to Wealth | 0 Facebooktwitterredditmail

The Community Composter Coalition is partnering with the U.S. Composting Council to bring our in-person gathering to Ontario, California as part of COMPOST2023.

Space is limited! The Forum & morning Field Day are only open to community composters at this time.

These events will bring together composters to network, share best practices, and build support for community-scale composting systems and enterprises. The Cultivating Community Composting Forum 2023 is the 7th national forum sponsored by the Institute for Local Self-Reliance.

Community composters, please join us!


Registration & Scholarships

The USCC is not easily set up to provide refunds or credits. If and when your scholarship application is approved, you will receive a scholarship code to register. If you do not receive the scholarship, your application will still guarantee you the early bird discount if you still decide to attend.

Community Composter Coalition (CCC) and California Alliance for Community Composting (CACC) members: The codes provided by USCC for community composters are currently not functioning. This page will be updated as soon as this changes.

Non-CCC member community composters: Register here!
