Be part of reducing waste being sent to landfill by learning how to compost at home. This free compost workshop for beginners includes a free compost bin, worm farm or Bokashi bin to take home.

Following the workshop, we would appreciate your help by completing three short surveys to provide information about how much food waste you compost and how the system is working for you.

This waste reduction program is being provided in collaboration with Bayswater’s Enviro House, who will host the workshop and offer ongoing support. 

You will learn:

  • Skills and knowledge to set up your own composting system at home.
  • How to convert your kitchen scraps and garden clippings into a useful soil amendment product (compost).
  • Other sustainable strategies to reduce waste to landfill.
