The Art of Composting

There are many ways to compost but which way suits your lifestyle and garden better? Close the loop on waste and learn how to make your own ‘black gold’ in a way that works for you.

During this day course, we will first look at how soils form and work; in order to understand how soil functions in nature. Healthy soils support a huge diversity of life forms which in turn support the development of healthy and nutritionally denser plants.

There is more than one way to compost and after learning about the many ways in which composting can happen, you will attempt the design of composting strategies for different settings.

Waste not, want not, as the saying goes, so you will learn how to make your organic waste useful to your gardening activities by designing the most effective composting strategy with the resources you have available locally.
