Compost deliveries for Darebin Community Gardens
To celebrate International Compost Awareness Week, Council have donated nutrient-rich compost to our local community gardens with help from the Back to Earth Initiative. These gardens are growing fresh and nutritious food with compost YOU helped create just by putting your food scraps and organic waste in your green waste bin at home. We love supporting our local community gardens to continue to grow fresh, nutritious food during this time. Find a garden or farm using this compost on Back to Earth’s Compost in Action Map.
The image included is the Urban Farm at the Melbourne Food Hub after they received their compost last year!
If you’re a community garden in Darebin and would like to be included in next years compost deliveries, then email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
More information on food and green waste recycling bin and compost is available at www.darebin.vic.gov/foodwaste.
Free composting tutorials
Are you setting up your first compost bin, worm farm or bokashi at home? We can help! We’re running two free Facebook live composting demos with our friends at 3000acres, to help you get the most out of your home composting system.
Two sessions are available which are suitable for beginners or those already home composting:
- Backyard Compost Solutions – Tuesday 5 May 10.30-11am
- Worm Farming and Bokashi basics – Saturday 9 May 10.30-11am
We want to see your home composting adventures this International Compost Awareness Week (3-9 May) – email us or post and tag your compost photos on social media with #darebinbackyardharvest to show us your composting systems, share your progress and inspire other home composters!
