WEB Compost edDiscover composting, gardening, native plants, and more at the Compost Education Center in Bond Park! Complete with informational signs and easy-to-access demonstrations, the Center can be explored at your own pace and preference. Take a stroll down the loop trail to explore the vegetable garden and native landscape displays and get ideas for what to plant at home! Soon visitors will be able to observe and try out a wide variety of composting methods, including vermiculture (composting with worms), pile composting, and grasscycling.

The Compost Education Center is located in a wooded area beside the Challenge Course and is open year-round during park hours. See a map of Bond Park.
