There are two main reasons to compost. One is about what you put in. The other is about what you get out. If you want to learn more about why or how to make compost, register for my free compost workshop 10-12 noon, Saturday 16 April 2016 at the Environment Centre Hawke’s Bay, Hastings. Those who have registered before 4pm Friday 15 April 2016 and attend will go in the draw to win a Kitchen Garden calico bag. I’ll have herb seedlings for the first ten people to register too, because who doesn’t want to be a winner in life?
Come and try your hand at turning kitchen, office and garden waste into rich compost to improve your soil. A mixture of theory and practical – we’ll build a new compost pile, and view compost in various stages of decomposition. Trouble shooting for your compost and ideas on what ingredients to use for the best results. Or you can enjoy these articles I wrote about ‘rotting to riches‘ and ‘easy composting‘. I’ll be running ‘home food production workshops‘ later in the year, although sadly contrary to what the image indicates, you won’t be growing bananas as a result. Just saying.
All workshop participants receive 10% off purchases made on the day of the workshop. These workshops are generously funded by Hastings District Council as part of their waste minimisation strategy.
