Free beginners compost and worm farm workshops

Published: 3 May 2021

Learn about compost, worm farms and digesters and how they can help you reduce your household waste at Council’s free beginners compost and worm farm workshops.

The workshops, which are held in partnership with Casey Cardinia Libraries, will show participants the benefits of compost, how to choose the best system for your household and how to get started. 

Cardinia Shire Mayor Councillor Brett Owen encouraged residents to sign up for the events to learn about the importance of compost as a valuable organic resource and how to easily get started at home. 

“These free workshops are a great opportunity to learn how to reduce your waste, save money and help our environment," Cr Owen said. 

“And, if you live in Cardinia Shire and you purchase a compost bin, worm farm or mulcher, you can apply for some money back through our Waste Reduction Rebates program.”    

The workshops are free; however, registration is required.
