Event Description

26th November

Join Rob Nichols from Worm Power and Karen Sander (GP & Permaculturist) as they talk about ways to recycle your food scraps to create food for your garden and chickens! Worm farms are a great way to recycle food scraps and create a beautiful, nutrient rich product: worm castings or vermicast. Soldier fly larvae provide high quality chook food. They break down organic matter relatively quickly in a small space and chooks just love them! They are high in protein and they are free! ​

We will look at how you can grow and harvest your own worms and soldier flies.​

Please note that we now charge a small fee for our workshops
