For Western Bay Residents Only.
A home worm composting farm is a great way for you to deal with most of your household food waste and create rich compost for your garden. Come along to this hands-on, two-hour interactive workshop and learn the art of worm farming!
At the end of the workshop you’ll receive your very own Vermihut worm farm bin, tiger worms plus lime and compost (valued at $255), so you can get started straight away.
Benefits of your worm farm:
- Quick and easy to get rid of your kitchen scraps
- Lightens your rubbish bag – saves money!
- Creates a free, natural fertiliser
- Stops methane gas production by removing your food waste from the landfill
- Minimal in size, perfect for all sized gardens
This workshop is perfect for worm farm beginners with little or no experience, or for those who would like a refresher. If you do not require a worm farm, but you would still like to learn about worm farming, you are welcome to attend the workshop at no cost, however, you’ll still need to register.

Please note, the workshop is subsidised by Council with a small fee charged. It is open to Western Bay of Plenty District Council residents only. Just one worm farm per household can be issued, but for each paid registration, two people may attend. Our worm farm kits are specially ordered for each workshop based on attendee numbers, therefore we are unable to provide a refund for non-attendance.
