Description

SEE-Change and Canberra City Farm are collaborating to bring you a wonderful hands-on workshop about compost.

What you will learn:

Jenni will show you how to make a large-scale, hot compost heap.

  • This type of compost heap doesn’t need turning and will get to about 70 degrees – that’s hot enough to knock out all weed seeds!

  • This method generates about two cubic metres of beautiful compost, ready for mid-winter preparation of veggie beds and feeding fruit trees.

  • Building the heap takes all day, and you are welcome to drop in as we demonstrate the Indore method of making compost (outlined in Peter Bennett’s book, The Organic Gardener).

Keith will show you how to compost on a smaller scale suitable for everyday kitchen scraps.

  • How to compost your kitchen and garden waste.

  • How to set up a worm farm.

  • How to use a bokashi bucket.

Time:

10.00am – 2.00pm – Jenni’s hot compost
2.00pm – 3.30pm – Keith’s composting

Please wear appropriate clothing for getting involved with the compost process.
