Earth Matters is currently recruiting compost enthusiasts.

If you are interested in being a compost ambassador in your workplace, neighbourhood, school, or any type of group, Earth Matters would love to hear from you.

Earth Matters staff will train and provide the know-how for you to set up your own compost system and educate others about how to use it.

Volunteers will learn the many benefits of composting, be provided with a toolkit, and receive on-going support.

Earth Matters addresses the need for environmental sustainability, and is presently finding ways to encourage waste reduction in everyday life.

Composting is one way to decrease our carbon footprint, and improve our natural environment.

If you would like to strengthen the community’s environmental awareness by teaching others the advantages of composting please email ecostore or call  250-352-2513 for more information.
