Composting course Environmentally con- scious people are being invited to sign up for a free composting course. The Create your own Eden course will take place in Ostend on Octo- ber 9 from 1pm to 4pm. Waiheke s free course is one of 100 Create your own Eden courses being put on around the reg- ion. Auckland Council decided to increase the availability of the course so more residents can learn how to put their food and garden waste to good work rather than sending it to landfill. The aim is to increase the amount of organic waste diverted from landfill into household compost. Auckland Council waste minimisation ad- viser Sue Martin says about 50 per cent of what Auckland households put out for rubbish collection could be recycled via composting bins, bokashi fermentation and/or worm farms. The biggest barrier is lack of knowledge on how to compost effectively -- which the practical, three-hour Create Your Own Eden courses fac- ilitated by the Kaipatiki Project helps overcome, she says. Bookings for the Wai- heke course are essen- tial. Phone the Kaipatiki Project on 482-1172 or email admin@kaipati ki.org.nz. Visit www.cre ateyourowneden.org.nz for more information.
