Mindful Gardening: Composting & Dealing with Weeds

Posted on 20th April 2018 by Kyly Dickson

Saturday 19th May, 10.30am – 12.30pm

Ravenscraig Walled Garden

Learn how to make your own compost and deal with weeds, whilst working with nature.

Simone from Solar Ripe Medicinal Garden will discuss the best methods to make compost and what we can do with ‘weeds’ – taking a mindful approach. This workshop will introduce ideas of permaculture, biodynamics and organic gardening, all of which work with, rather than against, nature.

We’ll look at what we traditionally think of as weeds and how we can use them in purposeful ways. We’ll also discuss how to make rich compost to boost the health of our gardens.

There will be a mix of theory and practical hands-on activities. Herbal tea will be provided, and participants will receive a hand-out to take home.

No experience necessary. Please wear suitable gardening clothing.

There is disabled parking on site and the venue is wheelchair accessible.
