Staff and Outreach Volunteers are available to speak to garden clubs, civic organizations, home owners associations, youth groups, senior groups, churches, schools and other groups– for free. Just organize a group and we'll send a speaker to lead a presentation on composting, vermicomposting, recycling, or green cleaning.  We are ready to lead the discussion and answer all your questions so you can learn everything you need to know about managing waste and helping the environment.  We are also available to attend your community event as an exhibitor.  Visits to the Lamb Canyon Education Center and the Headquarters Resource Garden can also be scheduled.  For speaker and tour requests, groups must be 15 people or more.  All requests are accomodated based on availability.  Click on one of the icons below for additional information and to schedule your request.
