Leaf Composting

The first workshop in the Winter ‘22 series tries to address leaf waste. Many of us in Dehradun have trees in our yards, or campuses and streets whose leaves are burnt daily in winter months. This leads to heavy carbon monoxide poisoning, and Dehradun’s AQI is quite similar to the NCR on many days in winter.

Can we address leaf waste sustainably? In this workshop, you will learn about different methods and approaches to leaf composting. The workshop will be conducted by experienced practitioners and experts!

Timings : 3pm to 5pm

Charges : Rs 300 per person
