Dr Compost Winter Veggies workshop - Wanaka
Harvest veggies from your garden through the winter with Dr Compost’s free Winter Gardening workshop. From hardy salad greens to classic winter staples like silverbeet and leeks, winter vegetables make the most of your garden beds. There’s nothing more local or fresh than food straight from your own garden = zero food miles and zero plastic.
Find out how to deal with our harsh climate by using cloches and existing microclimates. Learn about which crops grow well in our region including heritage varieties, and when to plant. Whether you’re an experienced gardener wanting fresh ideas or a total novice keen to soak it all up, you'll leave inspired to keep your garden producing all winter long.
Dr Compost, aka Ben Elms, has been gardening and composting locally for over 20 years. He's made many mistakes, and shares all his lessons in an entertaining workshop. Ben will answer all your questions during, or after, the workshop.
The Dr Compost home-composting project is funded by Queenstown Lakes District Council and delivered by Wastebusters to reduce organic waste going to landfill. Organic waste breaking down in the landfill releases methane, a harmful climate change gas.
