Dig into home composting or worm farming
It’s a great time to dig into your very own home compost or worm farming project.
Eurobodalla Council is offering free workshops this September to give residents practical tips to start or improve home compost or worm farms.
With a free kit to get started, Council’s waste services manager Nathan Ladmore said it’ll be easy to turn your food scraps into fertiliser.
“The weather has been a great introduction to spring, and plants will thrive with your very own nutrient-rich fertiliser from either a home compost setup or worm farm,” Mr Ladmore said.
“If gardening is not your thing, you can still benefit from composting or worm farming by reducing your red-lidded bin contents – latest audit figures showed 36.6 percent of Eurobodalla’s red bin contents was food waste.”
Mr Ladmore said organic waste releases methane as it breaks down in landfill, adding greenhouse gases to the environment.
“Recycling your organic waste is far more beneficial for both your garden and the environment,” he said.
“It's also a fun and rewarding way to get the kids actively involved in the environment.”
