Did you realise that when food scraps are sent to landfill, they decompose and produce methane, a greenhouse gas with more than 20 times the global warming capacity of carbon dioxide? Food scraps in landfill also produce an organic leachate which is polluting to groundwater.

Join Kimbriki‘s ecologists at a workshop to learn how composting and worm farms can turn household food scraps into a rich and nutrient packed by-product that you can use to improve the health of your garden through improving the nutrient, water capacity and carbon levels in the soil.


  • An understanding of ecological and permaculture principles.
  • An understanding of the ADAM principles and their application to composting and worm farming.
  • How to set up a compost system, how to operate it, how to use finished compost.
