Composting is a really wonderful way to transform organic 'waste' into a very valuable resource.

Whether you'd like to start composting, or to improve your existing set-up, join us for this informative workshop where we'll discuss everything you need to know to make beautiful, crumbly compost - from the basic science behind it to a range of composting methods, including different systems for regular/cold composting as well as hot composting, wormeries, and bokashi.

We will also share tips about how to go about composting in small spaces, what to include and what to avoid adding to your composting pile or bin, and how to troubleshoot common problems. 

Trainer bio

Camila is a food and herb grower, holistic gardener and forager. She is endlessly fascinated by the wonders of nature, and the beautiful processes that we get to enjoy as gardeners, such as seeds turning into plants and old plants turning into soil. 

Her current work involves growing food for restaurants at Urban Organic, and spreading the love for herbs at Hackney Herbal through community gardening, courses, and workshops. 

She adores composting, and can often be found talking to the microorganisms in her composting bins.
