Discover how you can easily reduce your household waste, and turn your organic rubbish into nutrient-rich compost for your garden.

 

Why should I start worm composting?
Diverting food waste from the landfill helps reduce greenhouse gases such as methane, that are harmful to our environment. Worm farms are a simple, low cost and low maintenance way to repurpose the nutrients in food scraps into compost, instead of unnecessarily sending them to landfill.

What you learn:
‘Vermicomposting’ uses worms to break down your food waste at home. Learn how to set up your own worm composting bin to take home, and turn kitchen scraps into vermicompost and ‘worm tea’ to fertilise your garden. We will also briefly talk about other ways to compost, like using a compost bin or bokashi bin.
