Composting is a fantastic way of re-purposing waste and creating peat-free, nutrient-rich compost for growing. This Biodiversity week take action and learn how to compost at home.
For a long time horticulture and growing has depended on peat-compost. We have seen the devastation this has had on our bogs and peatlands.
We need to transition away from peat-compost and embrace alternatives.
Composting is a great start. Join our online workshop to hear how you can act to save peatlands.
Craig Benton, known as Dr. Compost, here in Ireland and a co-founder of the Stop Food Waste programme, will talk about how to start composting at home.
This presentation covers the biology and essentials of composting including what can and should not be composted, explains the four systems that can be used for composting food scraps and/or garden trimmings including, simple compost bins, turning systems, mulching and wormeries, and finishes with how to use compost around your home.
Even for those that are already composting, this presentation will give you tips on how you can improve your composting technique.
A Q & A will follow to answer all of your queries and concerns.
Join us on the 19th of May to learn more!
