Join the Master Composter Training & Volunteer Programme

Master Composter Training & Volunteer Programme

Fingal County Council is delighted to announce the funding of places on the Master Composter Training & Volunteer Programme which is being organised in conjunction with the Stop Food Waste Programme.


If you want to learn about nature-based solutions to food and garden waste, you can express your interest to participate in the course at Skerries Mills. This action-packed programme will teach people how to prevent food waste and compost at home.


The course is designed to enable participants to:


  • Make a difference in your community 
  • Protect the environment
  • Meet like-minded people
  • Save money and have fun
    Participants are expected to attend all classes which consists of five evening classroom sessions on October 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29 from 7:30-10pm and three Saturday afternoon hands-on workshops on October 5th &19th and November 2nd from 1-5pm.
    This valuable training is offered free of charge to residents of Fingal only, but volunteers are expected to contribute outreach time afterward to spread the word and motivate others. If they choose, volunteers can spearhead a community-based project which will be supported with funding and technical assistance once the training has been completed.
    This is a unique opportunity for local schools, Tidy Towns groups, community centres, churches, resident associations or other community organisations within Fingal County.
    This is an exclusive offer as part of the Stop Food Waste Programme funded by Fingal County Council (each place is worth €200).
    To sign up, send your full name, mobile phone number and street address to before Friday, September 27th.
    Any queries can be directed to or call Sinead Fox, Fingal County Council Environment Department during office hours on 01 890-5453.
