You too can turn your garden waste into soil

Summer is often about keeping growth in check

Are you looking around your garden and feeling like it's all growing a little too fast? Early summer is good for making hot compost, because you can cut back all the weeds, overgrown trees, and get the green waste into a hot compost pile which may just be ready to use by May, when you'll be planting out your garden for the winter. 

Here's a handy pdf download to start gathering materials to make a giant compost pile.  

Other ways Blue Borage can help

There are a few other ways I can help you get going with your first hot compost pile: 

1) The online course 'hot compost' walks through the key points to consider and includes pre-recorded videos showing the technique I've found works best. 

2) Garden coaching for a month can include a session on hot composting. 

3) Keep an eye on the upcoming workshops to see if there's something in your area, or book me to come and run a community compost installation in your workplace, school or other venue. 

Happy Composting!
