Compost Outpost

The Compost Outpost is the Garden’s self-guided, outdoor demonstration area that shows the ease of composting at home. The site features a dozen different types of compost bins including inexpensive, homemade designs as well as more elaborate ones that can be purchased at retail outlets.

Informational signage allows for self-guided tours by Garden visitors, garden clubs, individual homeowners, scouts, and school groups.

The Compost Outpost is an education facility — NOT a place to pick up or drop off compost materials.

You can watch Fort Worth Master Composter volunteers working the piles live on most Friday mornings, subject to weather and holidays.

7:30 AM – 11:00 AM (Spring/Summer)

8:30 AM – 12:00 PM (Fall/Winter)
