Course – Compost Making and Using
June 01 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm £165
A fun day and plenty to learn. Using examples of the many heaps at Homeacres, I demonstrate and explain all stages of composting in detail.
Suitable ingredients, a range of possible methods to use, heap size, hot or cold and what happens at different temperatures, cover or not, how long before turning and is turning necessary, how long before using, tools such as thermometer and aerator, and whether it’s possible to reduce rats in heaps.
We look at bought composts too, for perspective, and to learn what happens with different processes.
Also we delve into heaps of horse and cow manure at varying stages of decomposition, including the greenhouse hotbed which will recently have been moved (turned) to it’s summer location.
The price includes VAT, hence an increase from last year.

“Charles has become the guru of no dig gardening. He’s a really good grower, organic, has fabulous produce and we went down to Somerset to see how he does it…. I’m a convert now, I want to dig as little as possible.”

I came on a course last August, and it has given me so much direction and understanding in my gardening thinking. And your updates through the winter are an absolute tonic.
