Wriggle into worm farming workshops

Friday 6 October 2017

Eurobodalla Council is again partnering with South Coast Colleges (AdultEd) to host popular worm farming workshops this month.

For a small fee of $25, participants will learn how to their turn kitchen scraps into rich fertiliser using a worm farm.

Participants will receive a voucher for a worm farm for their household from one of Council’s Waste Management Facilities and a box of live worms on the day.

Council’s Waste Minimisation Officer Belinda Wagner said worm farming was great for the garden and the environment.

“About half of all household waste is organic and most of it can be recycled through worm farming and composting by turning it into a rich soil supplement for your garden,” she said.

“It adds organic carbon and microbes back into the soil, saving money on fertilisers. It also saves landfill space by reducing what is thrown out in red-lidded bins.”

The worm farming workshops will be held:

  • Friday 20 October 2017 at Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens, Deep Creek Dam Road off the Princes Highway, Mogo, 9.30-11.30am
  • Saturday 21 October 2017 at SAGE Community Garden, Queen Street, Moruya 9.30-11.30am
