Volunteer Opportunities

LA Compost believes in enriching the connection between soil and people. There’s no better way to do so than by volunteering some time processing compost or by educating community members on their composting options. We have volunteer opportunities available for a diverse range of interests and availabilities. Check out our volunteer opportunities below and submit the “Sign Up to Volunteer” form to get started.
