Want to learn how to compost? Come along to one of the free 90-minute workshops we’re holding in partnership with Taupō Community Gardens in Taupō or Awhi Farm in Tūrangi - all workshop attendees go into the draw to win a home composter or worm farm!
There are a lot of ways to do your bit for the environment and composting is an easy one. When we throw away green waste, such as food scraps or lawn clippings, it ends up in our landfill. Composting is an inexpensive, natural way to deal with this waste. Composting will help you reduce green house gas production and decrease landfill deposits while saving you money and improving your garden.
