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

About this Event

Looking to reduce waste and feed your soil? Dr Compost’s free composting workshop will help you do just that with tips and tricks on three easy methods: cold (or traditional backyard) composting, Bokashi bins and worm farms.

Dr Compost, aka Ben Elms, has been gardening and composting in our region for over 20 years. He's made many mistakes, and learnt lots of lessons along the way, which he enjoys sharing in this informal and entertaining workshop.

Discover which method will suit you best, and tips to make your composting fail-safe. Get all the know-how to turn your food and garden waste into nutrients to feed your plants and soil.

Say goodbye to plastic bin liners: putting food scraps in the compost takes the smelly element out of your rubbish bin. Food scraps and green waste can break down in the landfill and release methane, a nasty climate change gas.

But back to the good stuff - compost is not only good for the environment, it's an amazing tonic for your garden which will make it flourish as never before. Compost is the key to growing your own food, especially in our unusual sub-alpine/mediterranean climate. It not only feeds plants and boosts the microbial activity in the soil, it also helps 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 an online ticket as the Dr Compost workshops are very popular and we have limited space at this venue.

The Dr Compost home-composting project is funded by Queenstown Lakes District Council and delivered by Wastebusters to reduce organic waste in landfill.
