Dr Compost’s free gardening workshop will give you the know how to turn your backyard into a productive local food hub.

This free Dr Compost gardening workshop will take you through everything you need to know to get a veggie garden started and to maximise your harvest.

Dr Compost’s top tips come from 20+ years of growing and composting in our harsh climate. In this workshop you’ll learn:

  • how to build a raised bed to using mulch to conserve moisture in the soil
  • which vegetables grow best in the Queenstown Lakes district
  • when to plant for the best yields
  • how to grow from seed, transplant seedlings and stagger plantings to avoid gluts
  • all about the magic of compost to add life to your soil, increase its water-holding capacity and feed your plants

You’ll leave inspired to start growing, and with the know-how to turn your backyard into a productive local food hub.

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