Weed composting and veggie swap @ Watsonia Neighbourhood House
Feb 24 @ 10:30 – 12:00

Facilitator: Marina Bistrin. Learn all the secrets of weed composting. Weeds are nutrient-dense and many can be easily cold composted without re-growing. Many households cannot easily amass enough material to create a hot compost; instead, you can build up a slow compost with small amounts of food and garden waste, using additions saved from landfill, such as coffee husks and grounds.

Also, participate in a veggie swap.
