Choose from two different workshops, composting and worm farming.

Setting up a worm farm - One hour, online (Zoom)
Learn how to set up a worm farm and make it thrive. This workshop is for people new to worm farming. It will cover some theory, show how to set up a worm farm and maintain it. There will be plenty of time for Q&A along the way.

Composting Q&A - One hour, online (Zoom)
A little composting theory and then lots of Q&A for the "compost curious". Are you already composting but have lots of questions about how to optimise your compost? This session is for those who may want to fill in knowledge gaps and have questions to ask.

This online session is open to people aged 14 and over. If you are under 18 years, the Child Parental Consent section of the enrolment form must be completed prior to the first session.

These are new online courses, developed in response to social distancing measures.
The Zoom link will be emailed to participants before the workshop.


This course is held online using Zoom. Participants must have a suitable device and data plan to run Zoom. For people who are new to Zoom, we offer a free, online, supported practice session.
