With the increased interest in the “War on Waste”, householders are encouraged to recycle their organic waste to reduce the amount of kitchen and garden waste that goes to landfill.
Regional horticulturist and ABC Radio gardening expert Ricky Smith will conduct a series of free workshops in the Riverina to encourage householders to recycle their kitchen and garden waste at home. The one and a half hour sessions, to be held in Griffith, Leeton and Narrandera, will cover various methods for organic recycling, including composting, worm farming and the Bokashi system.
The workshops are for householders who have never recycled organic material before, or who have experienced difficulties in composting or worm farming. Ricky says: “We will cover setting up and maintaining the systems, and discuss which system is suitable for different household situations.”
Compost bins, Bokashi, compostable kitchen bags small kitchen bins and/or a worm farm will be distributed at the workshops, to encourage residents to recycle their food scraps into useful compost, worm juice and worm castings, rather than waste valuable organic materials. There will also be information sheets on all systems for participants to take home.
