Dr Compost clinics in Queenstown and Wānaka

Feb 08, 2023

As summer winds down it’s a great time to start thinking about what you’d like to harvest from your garden this winter.

Whether you’re just starting out or looking to get the best out of your winter garden, come along and get inspired at Dr Compost’s free Winter Veggies workshop.

Find out which crops grow well in our region, when to plant for the best results, and how to protect your plants from our harsh climate by using cloches and existing microclimates.

With more than 20 years composting and gardening experience in our unique Central Otago climate, Dr Compost, aka Hāwea’s Ben Elms, has all the tricks to get your compost heap working and your garden blooming. He loves answering questions and sharing his knowledge in his entertaining workshops.

Spaces are limited, so please reserves your free spot for these popular workshops at Humanitix.
