Learn to Compost at Home

To help Woodland Residents learn how to compost, we have the Backyard Composting & Vermicomposting Guide which will take you step-by-step through building your pile, what to and not to add, and even troubleshooting any issues! 

Free backyard compost classes are offered intermittently through the Yolo County Master Gardners. Visit the Yolo County Master Gardeners website for information about classes,  composting, water-wise gardening, native plants, and other gardening tips and tools! 


The City of Woodland offers $100 rebates to Woodland residents, businesses, or schools that purchase up to 2 backyard compost and/or vermicompost bins or one electric countertop composter. Compost bins provide a positive economic and environmental benefit by reducing yard waste in our streets and adding nutrients to our yards and gardens.
