In support of International Composting Week Australia, experienced Volunteers from the Edible Landscape Gardens Project in Nerang will be hosting a Hot Composting Workshop – Learn How to Make Compost in 18 days.
Cold composting, although a great way to break down your own household waste and save landfill space, can be a long process. It generally involves compiling your organic material in large heaps and leaving it there for several months until it breaks down. The process can be sped up by turning the compost and adding water to encourage oxygen and moisture, but there is still a long wait.
Another approach is Hot Composting. This process producers compost in a much quicker time (just 18 days if done correctly), whilst killing off weed seeds and bacteria and breaking down the organic material into fine delicious compost ready for your garden.
Limited spaces available and pre-bookings required. Workshop is via Gold Coin Donation.
