Te Puke Home Worm Composting Workshop

April 2 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

*FOR WESTERN BAY OF PLENTY RESIDENTS ONLY*

Come along to this hands-on, two-hour interactive workshop and learn the art of worm farming!
A home worm composting farm is a great way for you to deal with most of your kitchen food scraps and create rich compost for your garden.

You’ll receive:
• waste minimisation education to deal with kitchen waste and create organic worm juice for their gardens;
• a two hour session to educate and demonstrate how to put together a worm,
• a Vermihut worm farm,
• small bag of compost to start the worm farm,
• 500g of live worms,
• a container of lime;
• laminated information sheets and a sticker for what to feed worms; and
• A contact for trouble shooting worm farm issues afterwards

This workshop is perfect for worm farm beginners with little or no experience, or for those who would like a refresher. If you do not require a worm farm, but you would still like to learn about worm farming, you are welcome to attend the workshop at no cost, however, you’ll still need to register.
