Our popular compost workshop is back, lead by our compost Queen Helena Buxton, where gardeners can learn how to improve their soil.

The secret to good gardening is good soil and the secret to good soil is compost. Saving kitchen waste and transforming garden refuse is a part of the gardening cycle, and as important as harvesting and food preparation.

In this workshop Helena gives hand on insights into creating perfect garden compost to make the most of your household and garden waste and collecting other composting materials. This covers three different ways for making compost: hot compost heap, cool compost bins and worm farming.

The backdrop to the workshops are Helena’s beautiful and productive garden ‘Arundel’ where good composting and soil improvement has turned a drought-stricken garden into a flourishing oasis. 

Cooking up Compost is located on the lands of the Wadawarrung people. Open Gardens Victoria wish to acknowledge the Traditional custodians and we pay respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
