Event description
Learn how to make your home compost bin more effective AND use the soil you make to grow food. (Women only event)

About this Event

Book your ticket to come and learn about composting from the perspective of making soil for your edible gardening. This is quite different to waste management.

Spring is just around the corner, and now is a good time to start getting your supplies together, including making healthy soil.

Bonus: Each attendee will receive a ticket for the online course on Compost Optimisation valued at $25.

Each week of gardening at the Women's Centre will include a garden tour, with advice on how to tend an edible garden at this time of year. There are often seeds to collect, plants to divide, cuttings to take.

It's a delightful venue - one of my most favourite gardens in Auckland. I am sure you will feel right at home. While we're there gardening you can make yourself a cup of tea, pick up some flyers on the courses on offer, and check out the calendar of social events.

Through the spring I will teach a few modules from my edible gardening curriculum - pick the topics that suit your interests, or come along each week for the company, get your questions answered, and shop for extra plants and tools from my mobile shop. I don't put anything on a courier, so this is a great chance to order seedlings or seed-raising mix.

Items for sale will include:

  • microgreen starter kits
  • seed raising mix to grow your own food at home (bring a bucket)
  • wooden seed trays (limited supply)
  • coconut coir, pumice sand, sifted compost (bring a bucket)
  • stainless steel buckets

Note: This will be postponed in the case of wet weather. Refunds need to be requested before the session is scheduled to start, otherwise the session will be recorded as an online session via zoom.
