Gardening Workshops
These short workshops will demonstrate how easy it is to start a veggie garden.  Participants will learn how to build and plant a no dig raised bed and be shown how easy it is to grow their own seedlings.

Composting Workshops
The Dr’s composting workshops cover four different systems: hot composting, bokashi buckets, worm-farms and Greencones.  They cover composting for the beginner through expert.
