Compost Outpost

The Compost Outpost is the Fort Worth Botanic Garden’s self-guided, outdoor demonstration area that shows you how easy it is to compost right in your own backyard. The outdoor 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.

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

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