During the workshop, we will show you how to refine the composting process to make the best quality compost regardless of what bin you’re using or the size of heap you have. We’ll also explore how to best use your compost in your growing space and demonstrate the composting system we use in our organic demonstration garden. There will also be plenty of time to ask your composting and organic growing questions. 

Topics covered:

  • How to make the best quality compost
  • How compost benefits your soil and soil life
