Composting workshops 2013

Lewisham Council is offering free composting workshops that you, your family or your friends may be interested in. The workshops will give you lots of tips and information and you will learn how to compost properly so that you can turn kitchen and garden waste into good useful compost that can be used on your garden.

Learn how to set up a compost bin, what can and cannot go into a compost bin, getting the right mix and trouble shooting. There’s no need to bring anything apart from yourself but if you could be there five minutes before starting time, that would be great.

Mr Compost says 'Come along and learn how to make some good quality compost for your garden.'
