Learn to compost and worm farm from experienced community gardeners.

About this event: To celebrate International Compost Awareness Week, we’re running a Composting 101 with Community Gardens event.

Composting or worm farming is an easy way to radically reduce the amount of waste you send to landfill and composting turns food scraps into rich fertiliser for your garden. Visit one or more community gardens to check out different systems and hear from gardeners about their own experiences transforming organic waste into garden gold.

The event will showcase sustainable practices such as:

  • composting and worm farming at home and in the community
  • processing food scraps from cafes and markets
  • composting toilets
  • edible gardening

Schedule:

9:00 am – 10:00 am: Addison Road Community Garden, 142 Addison Rd, Marrickville NSW 2204 – Composting and worm farming workshop and garden tour

10:30 am – 11:30 am: Wilkins Green Community Garden, Corner Sydenham Road and Livingstone Road Marrickville NSW 2204 – Composting food scraps from cafes and with the community, and composting toilets. Morning tea will be provided here!
