Event description

Description

Full lives, empty bins

Earth Carers is a community education program, connecting residents who are wanting to learn some practical, easy to follow steps to reducing waste in the home.

Do you want to know where your waste actually goes? Have you heard rumours about your waste? Would you like to make some changes at home, but not sure where to start?

Earth Carers will provide you with all the information you need to make small or large changes in your own environment. And you might even make some like-minded friends along the way.

Join the War on Waste

Earth Carers is a free course run over 5 sessions (three weeknight sessions and two weekend sessions). Earth Carers will cover:

  • Tours of waste facilities and community gardens
  • Worm farming, bokashi and composting
  • The journey to a zero waste home
  • Green cleaning
  • Combatting food waste
  • Home brewing
  • Tricky recycling items - Microwave? Drill battery? Fluoro Globe? Chemicals?
