The Goulburn Mulwaree Library will be host a free talk on composting.
As winter approaches many people start thinking about tidying up the garden and preparing their garden beds for spring. Compost is a great way to improve soil structure and moisture absorption, as well as introduce quality carbon and essential nutrients into the soil for healthy plant growth.
Goulburn Mulwaree Council's composting officer Sam Morris will speak about the benefits of compost and will help you learn everything you need to know about this black gold.
The talk will include information on how to get started creating your own compost, what to include (and not include) in your compost heap or green bin, how to test when your compost is ready to use, and how to fix common compost problems.
Sam will also talk about the highlights of creating the council's own compost using your household green waste.
The council recently launched organic compost for sale to the community, which has been a huge success. This product is also being used by staff at the council's parks and gardens, and in CBD gardens.
The talk will begin at 12.30pm on May 7, at the Goulburn Mulwaree Library. The session is free, but bookings are essential and can be made online at www.trybooking.com/BOXPI, in person at the library, or by calling 4823 4435.
