Making hot compost
Mar 8 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Learn how to make a compost heap that 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).  
Please register for this event to get the location details.
