International Compost Awareness Week (May 1st-7th) may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean the composting fun has to stop!
Composting is one of the easiest and inexpensive ways to make a positive impact on our planet, so check out the recordings of our International Compost Awareness Week webinars to get inspired to start.
Working with the Land: Traditional Composting and Gardening
Join special guest Audrey Logan to learn about Indigenous and restorative approaches to composting, gardening, and food waste reduction. Audrey Logan is a Nehiyaw (Cree) /Métis traditional food grower and knowledge keeper currently living and sharing in the inner-city neighborhood of West Broadway in Winnipeg, Treaty 1 Territory. Audrey will be sharing their knowledge about ways to work with the land instead of fighting against it, using their experience with permaculture and regenerative gardening techniques.
Compost Bin Building
Master Composter Mick Manfield demonstrates how to build two different types of wooden compost bins:
- Wood pallet compost bin
- Wood bin with a lid, and a door at the bottom using reclaimed cedar
You will be surprised by how easy it is! The webinar also covers where you can source the wood, what tools to use, & other top compost bin tips!
*This is the second time we’ve hosted this webinar, so this recording is from October 2021.*
