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.
