Building Compost Bins From Pallets workshop!!

This year we will be running a series of workshops, courses and talks, mainly at Hartcliffe City Farm, for you to come along and learn from experts  about their specialisms. Some of these will be very practical and hands on and some will be more theoretical.

The first of these is on 4th February at Hartcliffe City Farm, where we will be running a very practical workshop teaching all aspects of compost bay building from pallets. We will cover clearing your site, which are the best pallets to use and which to steer clear of, as well as giving advise on composting and different ways to achieve the best compost for your garden.

There are limited spaces to allow for the best experience for all our attendees!!
