Writing for pleasure to showcase the best Australia has on offer.
Gardening workshops and plant sales sell out very quickly, so if this is something you like, you better book early to the Worm Farming and Composting at Home Workshop with Brian Donaldson to be held at the Northey Street City Farm on Saturday 16th October 2021.
At the workshop, you will learn all the techniques to generate a beneficial soil conditioner from your garden waste. It is a great way to stop food and garden waste going into landfill and you can reap the rewards by producing more veggies for family dinners, growing healthier fruit and bird attracting plants.

What does this workshop include?
A tour of the composting and worm farming facilities at Northey Street.

Brian will teach you how to make several different types of worm farms with materials you probably already have at home.
A small amount of time will be set aside to study making aerated castings tea and easier liquid applications such as non-aerated castings tea, castings water extracts and weed tea (anaerobic teas).
