Solana Center for Environmental Innovation held its annual, Toast to Compost event on May 1 in Encinitas. A celebration and award ceremony, Toast to Compost recognizes graduates of Solana Center’s Master Composter Course.

Solana Center has graduated over 700 Master Composters who have gone on to become composting ambassadors in their communities. Over 70 people attended the event and got the buzz on bees from Hilary Kearney of Girl Next Door Honey, this year’s featured speaker.

Solana Center’s Master Composter course is a unique opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of the composting process through hands-on activities and in-classroom learning. Master Composter courses are offered for City of Encinitas residents. For more information, visit www.solanacenter.org
