Dr Compost Workshops

Dr Compost aka Ben Elms is back holding two free workshops on gardening and composting in the Lakes District. Coming from his garden in Lake Hawera Ben brings his wealth of experience of gardening in the difficult conditions of the Lakes.

Get Growing – Wednesday 24th February 6 – 8pm

Ben will be talking about the best ways to grow the best veggies for your space be it large or small. He also answers all those questions about those hard to grow plants so bring your questions and notepads.

Get Composting – Wednesday 2nd March 6 – 8pm

In this workshop Ben explains the importance of compost and the best techniques you can use to compost whatever your space. Composting is for everyone and essential for life and soil health. Come and learn more!

Both workshops take place at the garden centre in the fully covered barn area in front of the shop (where the compost usually is). Seating is provided but feel free to bring some extra, as the workshops are proving to be popular. Tea and coffee is also available as are toilets. We also have lots of parking space to the front and behind the garden centre.

Workshops are facilitated by the gang at Wanaka Wastebusters and funded by the QLDC.
