Dig into free Composting and Worm Farming Workshop

6 August 2015

Green thumbs, garden enthusiasts and residents interested in reducing their waste footprint have the opportunity to learn how to revitalise their gardens at Western Downs Regional Council’s free Composting and Worm Farming Workshop on Monday 17 August at Council’s Corporate Office, Dalby.

Spokesperson for Environmental Health Councillor Greg Olm said the interactive workshop will give residents the skills and knowledge to start composting in and around their homes.

“Whether you’re new to composting, want to expand your skills, or are interested in learning more about recycling and how to minimise your waste, I strongly encourage you to come along to the free workshop,” he said.

“Participants will discover all the tricks and tips on establishing a healthy worm farm, as well as gain useful information on the things, from the kitchen to the backyard, that can be composted and turned into valuable fertiliser for your garden.

“Recycling garden waste and food scraps is an easy way to take positive action for the environment, and composting is a great way to get the whole family involved in reducing your waste footprint in and around the home.”

The free Composting and Worm Farming Workshop will be held from 6pm to 8pm at Council’s Corporate Office, 30 Marble Street, Dalby. Spaces are limited, so bookings are essential.
