A 3hr masterclass on the magic of turning your organic waste into the best soil to grow your own organic food. Sarah Anderson, owner of Pope’s Produce farm at Woonona, will guide you through the pros and cons of three common types of composting systems; aerobic composting, worm farming and bokashi. She will demystify home organics, giving you and your household the skills to close the loop on food waste! Kids over 13 welcome to book with an accompanying (ticket-holding) adult.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to select the appropriate type of composting system for your needs, understand the basics of how and why this system works and apply the finished results to your plants. Sarah will explain what she has learned from running her small scale market garden, Pope’s Produce for the past 4 years. You will then:

- Learn the ins and outs of worm farming (let worms do the work!)
- Discuss options for lowering food waste in the kitchen
- Learn all about compost tumblers & in ground systems
- Practice making a cardboard box boskashi
- Meet other aspiring home composters and form a supportive community
