Learn to make exquisite compost

Hot Compost (Self-Paced Online Course)

Compost is an essential resource in any garden, but at this point in time in New Zealand, we cannot buy the highest quality biodynamic soil in retail outlets. 

So, if you want exquisite compost, you have to make it yourself, or ask your garden maintenance crew to learn a new skill.  

The good news is that you probably have a lot of the materials needed growing in your garden. If now is a good time to finally cancel your garden waste collection service and adopt a more circular mentality with your gardening, then the Blue Borage Hot Compost course is just what you need. 

Learn the simple four step process to transform your garden waste into exquisite soil.
