Kimbriki Composting and Worms Workshop
When food scraps are sent to landfill, they decompose and produce methane, a greenhouse gas with more than 20 times the global warming capacity of carbon dioxide. Food scraps in landfill also produce an organic leachate which is polluting to groundwater.
While Kimbriki does not receive food waste, the team at the Eco House & Garden are passionate about educating our community on how they can remove organic food waste from the waste stream through composting and worm farms.
This 3-hour workshop is perfect for those wanting to learn about worm farming or composting, or for anyone who needs a refresher or has a redundant compost or worm farm they would like to set up again.
It follows a practical and informative format that caters for all ages and levels of knowledge. Families are welcome to join in this workshop, so register today and join in the fun.
