Tauranga Worm Workshops

Composting with Worms is a Win-Win for Everyone

Tauranga City Council is offering residents a chance to learn the ins and outs of worm farming at an interactive workshop.

As well a giving you a convenient way to dispose of organic waste such as vegetable peelings, worm farming saves space in landfill which is good for the environment.  Vermicast, or worm poo, is also a fantastic form of compost to feed and nurture plants.

The two hour workshop is subsidised by council and includes a take-home pack, valued at $180, containing your own worm farm bin, worms, lime and compost so you can get started straight away.

The workshop is catered to beginners of worm farming with little or no experience, or for those who would like a refresher course.  If you don’t need a worm farm, you can come to the workshop at no cost, however you still need to register.  One worm farm can be issued per household.  Up to two people per household can attend.

Both the Tauranga City Council and the Western Bay of Plenty Council  organise worm workshops. Contact them if you live in their district.
