One World Garden Series, Composting

The final workshop in the One World Garden Series, Can-Do Composting, is coming up this Saturday, November 2, 10-noon in Kimberley and 3-5pm in Cranbrook.  
In Can-Do Composting, we’ll be learning what kinds of things we can do to get our composts ready for winter and how to keep composting despite the cold weather.  A compost in your backyard is an incredibly beneficial nutrient source for your garden – and it’s a great way to reuse ‘waste’ from your kitchen and yard.  The best part about it is that it’s free!  This is a great place to bring troubleshooting questions about your own compost and review what can be done to help make your compost more efficient. 

The Kimberley workshop will be held from 10-noon at the Kimberley Community Allotment Garden, located on Wallinger Ave. beside Coronation Park and in Cranbrook from 3-5pm at the Public Produce Garden in Eric McKinnon Park

As usual, we'll have some fabulous local garden mentors to help us out, and we look forward to celebrating the last stages of the garden before winter cloaks us in her magic.
The workshops are free but require registration.  To register, in Cranbrook: or call (250)427-7981, in Kimberley: or call (250)427-2535 ext 223.
