Introduction:

Nutrient cycling is the basis of life, sounds deep we know, but it's the truth of it. Without this system of turning the waste of one thing, into a food source for another, we would be no more.

Nature does it exquisitely, and in this workshop we teach you the best way we know how in emulating and assisting her. There are many modes of compost to suit absolutely every individual and their household set up. We'll take you through worm farms, bokashi, cold compost and hot compost. So no matter your space at home, your time and physical capabilities, we have you covered.

After a day in compost world you will go home with a deep understanding of compost and soil, determine what compost is best suited to you, get cracking on starting your own compost at home and/ or have the knowledge to improve your existing system.

The benefits of composting are endless... for your garden, for the planet, for the future and for yourself.

What to Bring

  • Hat, gloves, boots, water bottle, sunblock, small tub of food waste which we'll use and then this empty tub can be used to take home compost
  • Pen and paper
  • Own lunch/refreshments
