Event Description

If you’ve had a failed worm farm, if you’d like to start a worm farm but are not
sure how; or if you don’t want a compost heap but still want to recycle your
scraps, this is a one stop workshop for you.It can be tricky and many of us
have a few false starts before embarking on the road to making fertilisers
through worm farms and compost. In this workshop, you’ll establish a successful
worm farm and learn the troubleshooting tips for easy care. You can buy worms
from me on the day too if you want to repopulate a worm farm at home. We’ll
also explore other ways of dealing with food waste when you don’t have a
compost bin. Compost tea makers, compost bags, scrap sausages and trenching are
just some of the alternatives. And best yet, they are vermin free and virtually
odorless. Come along to learn these top tricks for a fertile garden. Its just $65 for this workshop and includes morning tea and notes, with plenty of samples to take home to get you started

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
