Composting Made Easy with Dr Compost (Queenstown)

A great veggie garden starts with great compost. It’s the magical ingredient for growing your own food, boosting the microbial activity in the soil and helping your soil hold moisture.

In Dr Compost’s free workshop, you’ll discover how to turn your food and garden waste into nutrients to feed your plants and soil, and get tips to make your composting fail-safe. 

Learn about cold and hot composting, Bokashi bins, and worm farms, plus find out which method will suit you best. 

Whether you want to get started on your compost journey, or maybe your composting has been de-railed (stinky Bokashi anyone?!), you can get some help from the doctor. 

With more than 20 years composting and gardening experience in our unique Central Otago climate, Dr Compost, aka Hāwea’s Ben Elms, has all the tricks to get your compost heap working and your garden blooming. He’ll share his knowledge and answer all your questions in this entertaining workshop.

Spaces are limited for this popular workshop, so please reserve your free ticket at Humanitix Composting Made Easy Queenstown.

The Dr Compost home-composting project is funded by Queenstown Lakes District Council and delivered by Wastebusters to reduce organic waste in landfill.
