Event description
Join us for a morning of compost workshops, children's activities and DIY beeswax wrap for International Compost Awareness Week.

About this event

Join Lismore City Council and North East Waste for a morning of all things compost and gardening in celebration of International Compost Awareness Week.

At the Environmental Education Centre in Lismore’s Resource Recovery and Recycling Facility, we will be running 2 composting workshop sessions – at each workshop we will teach you how to make your own compost bin, the basics of home composting effectively and how to then use your compost to nourish your plants. We will also host a beeswax wrap workshop and supply all the materials to make your own wrap to take home.

Children's activities include award-winning storytelling to celebrate the earth, helping with the beeswax wraps, designing your own calico bag and mini tours of the surrounding Rainforest Botanic Gardens if there’s opportunity. We ask however that children also be supervised on-site by their carers at all times.

The program for the day is:

9am - 9.30am: Storytelling with Jenni Cargill-Strong

9.30 - 10.30am: Compost workshop 1 (+ calico bag designing for kids)

10.30 - 11am - DIY Beeswax wrap

11am - Midday: Compost workshop 2 (+ calico bag designing for kids)

As part of our COVID Safe procedures, we ask those wanting to attend, to sign up for 1 of the 2 compost workshops. We also ask that you remain updated of any specific COVID safe guidelines to follow.

We look forward to seeing you there, and please email us with any questions!
