Easy ways to compost with Dr Compost – Wānaka

October 18, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Find out how to reduce waste and feed your soil at Dr Compost’s free composting workshop.

Healthy soil grows healthy plants, and a great way to feed your soil (and reduce your waste) is by composting your kitchen scraps and garden waste.

Dr Compost’s top tips come from 20+ years of growing and composting in our harsh climate. In this free workshop he’ll share his knowledge about three easy composting methods – traditional backyard composting (hot and cold), Bokashi bins and worm farms.

You’ll discover which method will suit you best and get all the know-how to turn your food and garden waste into nutrients to feed your plants and soil. Plus learn tips to make your composting fail-safe.

Composting is key to growing your own food and it’s great for the environment. It feeds plants and boosts the microbial activity in the soil, all while helping soil hold moisture and resist drought.

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