Wednesday, March 1, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The previous workshop provided information about the composting process. This workshop is more hands on and looks at various methods for completing both hot and cold composting. Hot composting is the traditional method using one or more bins. This is a great system that makes faster compost, but it is impractical for smaller gardens. Various plastic bins and drums are more suitable there. We’ll have a look at various commercial and DIY systems.

At the end of this course you will be able to select the right composting system that meets your requirements and you will know how to start the process, care for it, and what to do with the finished compost.

If you are going to take this course it is a good idea to also take Introduction to Composting for Gardeners.

Fee: $10 (plus HST) per person.
