Successful composting – workshop video

By 28th May 2020June 15th, 2020One Comment

Our gardening guru for this week’s dose of online gardening goodness was Peter, PLANT’s Community Gardener. Together with his helper Kirsty, he braved the challenges of technology and managed to deliver a live session from our community garden, taking minor glitches in his stride! You can watch the recording directly on our YouTube channel here.

The session included a show-and-tell of ingredients and techniques of building up a successful hot compost pile, followed by a lively question and answer session on all things that go into making of soil-nourishing humus.

Peter comes back for our next workshop on taking care of growing vegetable plants. Bookings are now open on Eventbrite. In the meantime, you might want to browse through recordings from previous sessions here.

This workshop series is an informal collaboration between a number of local community food growers in response to increased demand for growing advice under covid-15 lockdown, including Edible Campus (Transition University St Andrews), Strathkinness Community Garden, Ninewells Community Garden, PLANT’s Tayport Community Garden. We would welcome any other contributors, please get in touch with Kaska on
