Making Compost on Farm Course

Learn how to make high-quality compost on your farm, low labour methods.

In this four-part online course and two in person on site sessions (Mid Coast area), we go over the essentials of making compost on farm.  If you have access to farm waste (such as dairy or poultry waste), this course will help you convert them into nutrients for your soil. If you already make compost, then learn about fermentative composting and save water, time and effort!  We also look at how to use compost to build soil health.

Join David Hardwick online as we explore how to make compost using a minimum to no turn approach called fermentative composting (also called SPICE) as well as making aerated compost with a turner. We look at the range of ingredients for making compost, tips for managing the site and the process and how to assess compost quality using tests. Simone Dilkara  and  Lee Fieldhouse will give you hands-on experience making an inoculate and building a compost pile.

At time of  of  high fertiliser prices there’s never been a better time to start cycling your available nutrients back into your soil.
