A hands-on practical course on how to build and look after a hot-compost heap. Over 3 hours you will help build a hot-compost heap that will increase garden fertility using low or no cost waste materials.

Hot-composting aims to decompose your garden and food scraps with minimal loss of nutrients whilst stimulating beneficial micro-organisms. When done right a hot-compost heap naturally builds up temperatures of around 60-70 degrees to kill off parthogens and weed seeds.

What will you learn:

  • Types of heap structure
  • Ingredients
  • Placement
  • Turning
  • Problems & Monitoring
  • Other Composting systems
  • How to use the end product

Cost: Free

You will receive a discount voucher toward purchase of a composting system.

What to wear: Please wear clothes suitable for gardening and closed-toe shoes (eg. sneakers or gumboots), you may wish to bring your own gloves. We will provide all tools and will have gloves and gumboots you can use.

Location: The course will be held at our Environment Centre in Birkdale.
