Book now for worm farming workshops


Eurobodalla residents can learn how to turn their kitchen scraps and garden waste into a nutrient-rich fertiliser at worm farming workshops next month.

For just $25, participants will learn the ins and outs of successful worm farming and receive a voucher for a free worm farm and a box of live worms on the day.

Council’s Waste Minimisation Officer Adam Patyus said worm farming was great for the garden and the environment.

“About half of all Eurobodalla’s household waste is organic and most of it can be recycled into compost,” he said.

“Worm farming can save you money on fertilisers, as it produces a nutrient-rich supplement for plants that adds organic carbon and microbes back into the soil and helps it to retain moisture.

“It also saves landfill space by reducing what is thrown out in red-lidded bins and helps decrease greenhouse gases.”

The worm farming workshops, hosted by Eurobodalla Shire Council and South Coast Colleges (AdultEd), will be held on Friday 9 March at SAGE Community Garden, Queen Street, Moruya 9.30-11.30am, and Saturday 10 March, at Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens, Deep Creek Dam Road off the Princes Highway, Mogo, 9.30-11.30am. To book phone South Coast Colleges on 4472 9202.

There are still places available for Council’s popular composting workshops in March and April. Visit www.esc.nsw.gov.au/events for details.
