Ever wanted to learn how to create your own best-practice compost or worm farm? Here's your chance. The Griffith EcoCentre has teamed up with Brisbane City Council to show you how to start your own worm farm or compost heap, or if you've already started, to answer any burning questions you might have. Join Waste Educator, Jean Delzoppo, to learn how best to break down your organic household waste, reduce landfill, help minimise greenhouse gas emissions and invest rich nutrients back into your garden and produce.

Jean Delzoppo is a Brisbane City Council Waste Education Officer with over 8 years’ experience working in environmental education and community engagement. In her current role she develops and delivers waste education programs, assists schools and other organisations to set up waste management systems, organises events and runs regular compost and worm farming workshops. She is passionate about conserving and recovering our resources and is happy to ’talk rubbish’ at any time.
