Event description

A hands on hot compost build
Come and spend the day at Sharda. We'll start with a welcome at 9:30, then get straight into gathering materials for our compost from around 10am. Bring your own lunch, and if you need extra breaks during the day, then you're welcome to wander around the property and enjoy the atmosphere. 

I'll stay with the pile all day, making it as big as possible before adding the magical biodynamic compost preparations around 2pm and winding up by 2:30pm. 

Any questions? Please email me at

How the Sharda workshops run: 

You are welcome to book a room at the Sharda Centre on the Thursday evening and create your own mini retreat: bring a yummy dinner, breakfast and lunch, some artwork, a favourite book, good sturdy shoes for walking through the bush... you know best what makes a night away a special time for you.

I recommend an early morning wander around the gardens, and please know that you're welcome to explore the composting systems that are up and running already. 

I'll arrive in the morning, around 9:15 and then we'll get stuck into the workshop.

What to bring: 

- Gumboots, or sturdy shoes suited to gardening on uneven slopes with blackberry and other invasive weeds. 

- Wear suitable clothes for gardening. We will go ahead in light rain. 

- Gardening gloves.

- Sunhat, water bottle, and please remember to put on some sunscreen in the morning. 

- If you are staying overnight, then please contact the office to make your booking and pay Sharda for this separately to the gardening workshop: Note there are two prices for overnight stays - it's your choice whether you want to bring your own bedding or not.
