Event description

Description

When it comes to local food, there's nothing more local than freshly picked vegetables straight out of your garden. This free Dr Compost gardening workshop will run through everything you need to get a veggie garden started and to maximise your harvest.

From building a raised bed to using mulch to conserve moisture in the soil, Ben's top tips come from over two decades of vegetable gardening in our harsh climate. He's made all the mistakes so he can teach you how to avoid them.

Find out which vegetables grow best in the Queenstown Lakes district, and when to plant them for the best yields. Learn how to grow from seed, transplant seedlings and stagger plantings to avoid gluts (every gardeners worst nightmare - courgette's anyone?). And let's not forget the magic of compost - the secret gardening ingredient which will add life to your soil, increase its water-holding capacity and feed your plants, all while reducing the waste going into your rubbish bin.

Veggie gardening is a life-long hobby/passion, so we're not promising to give you all the answers in one workshop. But we can guarantee you'll leave inspired to get growing, and with all the knowledge you need to turn your backyard into a productive local food hub.
