TTG Kitchen Gardeners’ Composting workshop

Waste is everything…

To your garden that is. Kitchen waste is also one of the biggest problems facing our city councils in tackling waste management. But if you compost, keep worms or backyard chickens, you shouldn’t need to throw anything organic in your green bins. 

Come along to our first workshop of 2016 and learn tips for the perfect compost, and encouraging worms.

Peter and Jane will share their knowledge on composting options and we’ll build a ‘hot’ compost pile together. So be prepared to get your hands dirty! We have some great compost to show off, with bin composters, worms, bokashi, and more.

Kids’ Club

Kids are welcome to take part under parental supervision or there will be an opportunity to play. So please make sure they are wearing gardening clothes, you may like to bring little gloves too.

We like to share. Please bring:

  • Something from your garden/kitchen for the sharing table (eg. seedlings, fruit, herbs, eggs etc)
  • Something to share for afternoon tea.

February Movie Night – Sugar Coated

“How the food industry sugar-coated science, sweetened the food supply, and seduced a planet, one spoonful at a time.”

Sugarcoated2

“How did the food industry get us to stop asking the question: is sugar toxic? It all starts with a secret PR campaign dating back to the 1970s. For forty years, Big Sugar deflected all threats to its multi-billion dollar empire, while sweetening the world’s food supply. As obesity, diabetes, and heart disease rates skyrocket, doctors are now treating the first generation of children suffering from fatty liver disease. The sugar industry is once again under siege. They dodged the bullet once. Will they do it again?” IMDB score = 7.7/10

Please RSVP via Eventbrite to help the kitchen know how many to expect.

As usual, the second Tuesday of the month – Tuesday 9th February

The Stirling Arms Hotel, 117 James street, Guildford
