Event description


Want to reduce your food waste, create your own fertile soil, and make your garden thrive?

Then join us at our free worm farm and composting workshop!

Learn how to set up a worm farm and compost system, tips and tricks to solve regular problems, and what system best suits your needs.

The workshop is open to anyone, but only residents can receive the vouchers for 1000 free worms and 50% discount for the equipment.

Bookings Essential – numbers are limited to 30 people.

If you can't make it, please contact Rebecca Evered, Waste Education Officer, on 9806 8295 or and she will contact those on the waiting list to take your place.


Who can come to the workshop?

Anyone can attend from outside the City of Parramatta area but only residents can receive the vouchers for the free worms and 50% discount on the equipment.

Do I receive the discount if I live in the new areas that now belong to City of Parramatta or if I live in the old areas that moved to Cumberland Council?

If your home now resides in the City of Parramatta (welcome!), you receive vouchers.

If your Granville or Guildford home used to be a part of City of Parramatta and now resides in Cumberland Council, we are still offering the worm farm and composting vouchers for this workshop (yay!).

If you live in other councils, unfortunately, you cannot receive the discount vouchers (sorry!). But we are still pleased you are joining us.

Can children come to the workshop?

Children can attend but must be accompanied by an adult. All reasonable effort must be made to keep your children entertained and involved so don’t forget to bring those colouring pads and pencils, toys, books or whatever else your child loves to play with. Please respect other participants and if your child is crying or loud, please walk outside with your child until they are quieter (then come back in and join us!).

What do I need to bring to the workshop?

Please bring a notepad, pen and a willingness to learn and ask questions.
