Residents of Caboolture real estate are being urged to reduce, reuse and recycle during International Composting Awareness Week, which starts on May 5. This could be a great opportunity for people in the Moreton Bay community to get a taste of sustainable living and to consider adopting some practises into their daily lives.
The Regional Council will be running workshops throughout the week to provide an education to anyone interested in learning about reducing waste in a cleaner, greener way through do-it-yourself composting.
Councillor Brian Battersby said that on May 10, there will be three free workshops about making your own organic fertilizer and improving the quality of your garden soil, which will be a helpful skill to have heading into a sustainable lifestyle.
"Composting is a great way to help reduce the impact on our environment of the 4 million tonnes of food in Australia that goes to waste every year. There will also be an opportunity for residents to purchase a compost bin and worm farm at council's Caboolture, Dakabin and Clontarf waste facilities," said Mr Battersby in a May 1 statement.
If you're interested, ensure you book your place at the workshops to secure a spot.
