Event description

Description

Registrations extended until Sunday 24th September 2017

Are you keen to reduce your landfill waste, help the environment and improve your garden?

Have you been thinking of getting started with composting and want to jump straight into it? Or maybe you've tried before and it just wasn't working for you?

It's really easy once you have the tools and know-how!

Sign up to this six-month program and learn how to turn your food scraps into compost effectively in your own backyard.

Register and receive:

  • a rebate of 50% on the purchase of a compost bin or worm farm (up to $40, GST inclusive)
  • a composting information kit
  • a free kitchen caddy
  • a free one-hour hands-on workshop on Saturday 7th October
  • post-workshop support

In the week commencing Monday 25th September you will receive a program information kit in the mail including advice on choosing a compost system and how to claim your rebate and kitchen caddy.

We recommend choosing a compost bin or worm farm prior to attending a workshop for maximum benefit from the session. Workshop options are included on the registration page and we'll send an email reminder nearer your chosen workshop date.

Post-workshop support includes seasonal tips and a phone call or email to check in with how your compost is going. We'll also be seeking regular feedback on how much food waste you are diverting from landfill to your compost bin or worm farm.

To register you must be a City of Marion resident who is not currently composting at home.

Only one registration per household is required.

Book now - places are limited!
