About this Event

At EcoMatters Environmental Trust, this composting workshop will be facilitated by Adam and EcoHub organic teaching garden co-ordinator Meg Liptrot, and offers an introduction to hot composting in the home and garden.

Hot composting aims to decompose your garden and food scraps with minimal loss of nutrients whilst stimulating beneficial micro-organisms. When done right a hot compost heap naturally builds up temperatures of around 60-70 degrees which will kill off pathogens and weed seeds. A well-made compost boosts the health and life in your garden soil, and this helps to grow stronger and healthier plants.

What to wear: Clothes for gardening and sturdy, closed-toe shoes with grip (eg. sneakers or gumboots), gloves.

Bring: a water bottle, raincoat.

Let’s get your compost ‘cooking’!

Confirmed participants will receive a $40.00 discount toward the purchase of a composting system that can be redeemed online.

This course is proudly supported by Auckland Council and delivered by the Compost Collective and EcoMatters.
