Composting tips – and workshop on Wed March 18

 

“Old gardeners never die; they just very slowly turn into the most magnificent compost. But what a marvellous, active brew it is!”

– Peter Cundall

Different composting methods break down the material in different ways, using different helpers – so what goes in depends on what you’re doing with it.

Generally, the hotter and faster the method, the greater variety of materials it can handle. Slow, cold methods are not well suited to handling anything that is hard to break down or that gets smelly and attracts vermin. There is a composting approach to suit everyone.

To learn how to manage various composting methods and work out which suits you best, come along to a COMPOSTING WORKSHOP on Wed 18 March, 10-12 at Lockleys. $20. This is a child-friendly session so feel free to bring your little ones.
