There are two secret ingredients to a truly exceptional garden: liberal and effective use of compost and a thriving population of earthworms.
Compost, which is comprised of decomposed plant matter can give your garden the nutrients it needs to grow, even under the blazing summer sun. Earthworms operate to aerate soil, as well as producing fertiliser through their own bodily functions.
The issues that eludes most people is how to ensure that your garden is getting enough of these secret ingredients. This issue is particularly significant in our era, when such a high premium is placed upon the importance of securing the future of our environment.
It is for this reason that the City of Sydney is running courses in both composting and worm farming throughout January and February.
The workshops will allow you to take your existing plant-based waste and turn it into compost. They also provide an open forum for people concerned about the environment to share ideas about making more sustainable decisions in your household and in other areas of your life.
Although the workshops are free, it is necessary to make a booking over email, at firstname.lastname@example.org or over the telephone at (02) 9519 6366.
