Composting & worm farms

Compost and worm farmCompost bins and worm farms are two great ways to recycle your fruit and vegetable scraps at home and turn organic material into rich nutrients for the garden.

Composting and worm farming at home is simple, and good for the environment by reducing the amount of organic waste that goes to landfill and creating a more natural and healthier place to live.

Worm farms produce great natural fertiliser for your garden, take up very little space and are easy-to-use.


Mackay Regional Council sponsors free composting and worm farming workshops each year. The next workshop is to be held on Saturday, October 23, from 9am to 11am, at Slade Point Community Garden, Wren St, Slade Point. The workshop will be hosted by permaculture specialist, Luke Matthews, from Pandurunga Permaculture Farm.
