Inner North compost workshop

Thank you to everyone who came along and build a large-scale, hot compost heap with Jenni. She  is regularly monitoring the temperature of the compost heap and is happy to see that it is well on the way to the predicted 70 degrees needed to generate beautiful compost in about 6 weeks.

  • This type of compost heap doesn’t need turning and will  hot enough to knock out all weed seeds!
  • It will generate about two cubic metres of compost, ready for mid-winter preparation of veggie beds and feeding fruit trees.
  • The compost method demonstrated was by the Indore method  (outlined in Peter Bennett’s book, The Organic Gardener).

Keith showed 12 people you how to compost on a smaller scale suitable for everyday kitchen scraps. He demonstrated how to compost kitchen and garden waste and how to set up and use a bokashi bucket and worm farm.

It was a wonderful day of learning!
