Eurobodallans can transform unwanted kitchen scraps and garden clippings into gold-standard garden fertiliser, all from the comfort of their own home.
By co-opting worms and microorganisms, residents can employ low waste, low emission and low cost solutions to deal with organic household waste and help heal the planet with soil-enriching supplements.
Eurobodalla Council is again hosting its popular composting and worm-farming workshops. Manager of waste services Nathan Ladmore said both courses would run in early November.
“Composting is a great option for everyone with a garden because it takes nearly all of your food scraps, leaf-litter and prunings.” Mr Ladmore said.
“While worm farms are perfect for people with more limited space or looking for a no-smell solution. Once you know how, caring for these amazing critters is both fascinating and easy. Either way, residents can easily reduce the amount of organic waste being sent to landfill.
“We have workshops for both options and on completion participants receive either a free compost bin kit or worm farm with worms, depending on the course attended.”
November courses will run on Friday 4, Saturday 5, Friday 11, and Saturday 12 of November at the Moruya Waste Transfer Station, 21 Yarragee Road, Moruya. Composting runs from 9.30 to 11am and worm-farming runs from 12-1.30pm. For more information or to book contact Council’s friendly waste management team on 4474 1024 or visit Home composting and worm farming | Eurobodalla Council (nsw.gov.au).
