Event description
Dr Compost’s free composting workshop will help you turn your food scraps into food for your garden

About this Event

Find out how to reduce waste and feed your soil at Dr Compost’s free composting workshop.

Learn about three easy methods: cold (or traditional backyard) composting, Bokashi bins and worm farms, and discover which method will suit you best. Get all the know-how to turn your food and garden waste into nutrients to feed your plants and soil, and tips to make your composting fail-safe.

Dr Compost, aka Ben Elms, has been gardening and composting locally for over 20 years. He’ll share his knowledge and answer all your questions in this entertaining workshop.

Putting food scraps in the compost takes the smelly element out of your rubbish bin so you can say goodbye to plastic bin liners. Plus composting is great for the environment and it's key to growing your own food. It feeds plants and boosts the microbial activity in the soil, all while helping soil hold moisture and resist drought.

Whether you're just getting started or want to make your composting system work better, this workshop is for you. Don't forget to register for your free online ticket as the Dr Compost workshops are very popular and space is limited.

The Dr Compost home-composting project is funded by Queenstown Lakes District Council and delivered by Wastebusters to reduce organic waste in landfill. When food scraps and green waste can break down in the landfill and release methane, a nasty climate change gas.
