Saturday 2 June, 1-3pm
Farnham Street Neighbourhood Learning Centre
28 Farnham St, Flemington
Composting sometimes gets a bad rap as a messy, smelly, labour-intensive chore, but it doesn’t need to be – honestly! Learn different composting and worm farming techniques and how to trouble shoot common problems. You’ll be able to start a compost bin or worm farm, choose a system that suits you best and, very importantly, know how to use your compost and worm castings in the garden.
FREE workshop. Bookings required at www.mysmartgarden.eventbrite.com or call 9932 1142.
