Home Composting Trials #3

Did you know that 30- 50 percent of your general waste bin is organic waste and it could be composted on site, avoiding energy loss from transport and emission of dangerous greenhouse gases at landfill facilities?

Did you also know that plants and the microbes (that live and breed in compost, have a symbiotic relationship that determines plant health?

All that food waste and other organics is far too valuable for our soil to waste it by throwing it away.

You can ditch the fertilisers, save your pocket and do your garden a favour by making compost.

Join Robyn Brown, from Waste Is My Resource, to learn about composting. She will will show you various forms of composting available for home gardeners such as how to use a compost bin, rotating composter, worm tubes. worm farms, pet composting and bokashi composting (ideal for small units).

This workshop is funded by Waste Sorted and the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale. It is part of a lead up to a community Plastic Free July festival at Mundijong on 1 July.

If you agree to participate in a trial of collecting organic waste, you will initially receive a bucket composter and a kitchen caddy. You will then be asked to record approximately how much organic waste you collect daily,over a month and return a sheet to show those findings. If you return the data sheet and attend the Plastic Free July event on 1 July, you will then be able to collect your choice of a compost bin, worm farm or bokashi bin.
