Saturday, workshop on how to make compost at Es Viver

This Saturday, 16 October at 10 am, we have organised a workshop on how to make compost in the garden at GOB’s Es Viver. To attend, please could you register here . Kitchen waste or the cuttings from the kitchen and house gardens rather than being wasted are a useful resource and good for improving the fertility of the earth if they are well composted using the right techniques. This Saturday there is an opportunity to learn how to do it.

Remember that the Es Viver garden centre of GOB is open from Monday to Saturday from 10.00 to 13.30. Now is a good time to seed the kitchen garden for the winter. You will find many ecological seedlings of local varieties and other plants.
