Maine Compost School History
The Maine Compost School is the longest continuously running compost program in the United States — 2024 marks our 28th anniversary! It began in 1997, in response to numerous compost education requests from the public. In 2002, the program relocated to Highmoor Farm, a University of Maine Forest and Experimental Station in Monmouth, Maine. Over 700 participants have come from 42 US states, ten Canadian provinces, and 40 other foreign countries. In 2007, a full-scale commercial compost site was constructed as a center of excellence for education and research. The new facility provides opportunities for hands-on learning and field experiences along with traditional classroom activities. The five-day school attracts a wide range of participants of which, approximately two-thirds are from for-profit businesses and the rest are from non-profits such as schools, government agencies, or personal interests.
