Want to learn how to compost, set up a worm farm or use Bokashi? Don’t know the correct ratio of brown to green waste or what can’t go in your compost? We can help with that.
Join the many Nelsonians who have already taken part in a one-hour free workshop, hosted by Tim’s Garden and sponsored by Nelson City Council’s Rethink Waste programme.
Tim’s Garden director Tim Morozgalski said the workshops cover how best to produce compost, how easy it is to compost at home, and what to do with it in the garden.
“What really seems to strike a chord with attendees is when we explain that any amount of home composting will help improve their environmental impact and build healthy soil in their gardens. Landfills are a last resort for green and kitchen waste.”
The next two workshops are scheduled for 20 April, and 20 May.
Once attendees are equipped with their new composting know-how, as well as taking away a goody bag from the workshop, they can take advantage of the $20 Council subsidy on compost bins, worm farms and bokashi buckets available at local retailers.
