Making compost is about disposing of the inputs (organic garden and kitchen ‘waste’) and using the valuable output (compost). Ideally both.
If you’ve been having problems with your compost this workshop is for you. Learn how to dispose of your kitchen and garden waste more quickly and produce compost more efficiently. Troubleshoot common problems and watch a compost heap being made. Bring sun hat / rainwear / warm clothing for the conditions as we’ll be outside some of the time. Wear flat, covered shoes. Please arrive at the centre 15 minutes before the start to allow yourself time to park and get settled in. Please enter through the front entrance on Karamu Road and sign in at reception. We’ll start on time so if you arrive late and the door is locked, please ring the bell.
