Celebrating Compost in May: Rich Soil from Food Waste and Worms

Waste is everything...

To your garden that is. Kitchen waste is also one of the biggest problems facing our city councils in tackling waste management. But if you compost, keep worms or backyard chickens, you shouldn't need to throw anything organic in your green bins.

Come along to our third workshop of 2015 and learn tips for the perfect compost, and encouraging worms.

The workshop will be run by compost expert and waste separation consultant Kim Frankowiak and Kitchen Gardeners' resident 'chook lady' Barb Frey, who will be sharing their knowledge on setting up a practical compost area using bought or recycled materials. Be prepared to get your hands dirty! We have some great compost to show off, with bin composters, worms, bokashi and more.

Kids' Club

Kids are welcome - we'll have some hands-on children's activities happening in conjunction with the workshop if your child wishes to play, so please make sure they are wearing gardening clothes. You may like to bring little gloves too.

We like to share. Please bring:

  • Something from your garden/kitchen for the sharing table (eg. seedlings, fruit, herbs, eggs etc)
  • Something to share for afternoon tea.
