When repenting is due after a weekend of rule-breaking, head to the hills for Griffith Park's composting workshops. On the fourth Saturday of every month, the park crew puts on morning classes that offer instruction in the best methods of composting for every type of home dweller. Come prepared to get your hands dirty and become one with the worms, then reward your labors with a discounted compost bin, up for grabs after the workshop is done. Whether you decide to splurge on the Blostack ($45) or keep it simple with the Worm Bin ($5), you'll walk away a better composter, forgiven for last night's sins.
5400 Griffith Park Dr., L.A., (213) 485-2260. Fourth Saturday of every month, 10 a.m.-noon.
