Old-Lands is an old family estate in Monmouthshire who run interesting courses based on traditionally green principles. They have the most amazing walled garden. The compost course, run by the Land Gardeners taught us about the principles of Biodynamics and the Berkley compost method. It was a really interesting day with a morning talk and some hands on action in the afternoon.

Composting is a real art form. If time is available, this method is well worth investing in. You will need to turn your compost every couple of days for the first two weeks and then occasionally for the next few weeks.
You can create humic rich compost in 6-8 weeks, which is extremely quick.
