This workshop is perfect for anyone who is tired of throwing kitchen scraps in the garbage or paying for compost every year!

It's not called black gold for nothing!

In this fun two hour hands on workshop you will learn:

  • About all things compost!

    • What is it?

    • Why is it important?

    • How do we know what to put in it?

    • What are the different ways we can compost?

  • How to create a compost pile!

    • How do you build a hot pile vs a cold pile?

    • What to look for to determine the health of your pile.

    • How do we turn compost?

    • How long does it need to decompose?

This workshop takes place right up in The Forest Garden.

During this workshop we will be getting our hands dirty pulling apart a compost pile I've already got going to look for signs of health! We'll be learning about layering and turning, temperature, shade, and water and how all these things facilitate a healthy compost pile

This hands on workshop will be a deep dive into all things healthy compost. If you're wanting to improve your garden this year and make your own black gold, this is a workshop you don't want to miss.
