Event description

Description

This free composting workshop in Wanaka looks at three easy methods of composting: cold (or traditional backyard) composting, Bokashi bins and worm farms. Find out which method will suit you best, and get lots of tips to get your compost humming.

Composting can free you from plastic bag dependency - taking all the foodscraps out of your rubbish bin means you'll no longer need to line your bin with a plastic bag. Food scraps in your bin not only make it smelly, they also break down in the landfill (along with garden waste) and can 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 hot, dry climate. It not only feeds plants and boosts the microbial activity in your soil, it also helps your soil hold moisture and resist drought.

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. Don't forget to register 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.
