Ruth Jacobs and Don Headey from Liverpool Organic Gardeners gave an introduction to composting and wormeries, complete with slides, compost samples and worms!
Tom and Roisin introduced their plans to set up a charity that will collect household food waste in the Aigburth area, and compost it off-ste. Their plans are still in the early stages and they would really love to hear from you if you'd like to help them get it going!
The event was attended by all kinds of people ranging from the well-experienced composters to the complete beginners, which meant everyone was able to learn something new or share their knowledge with others. The event demonstrated just how much people in the group already know and are doing everyday that is so important in reducing both our impact on the environment and our energy dependence.
For anyone interested in starting their own wormery - or for those who want to make theirs work better, Ruth brought along a highly recommended book, 'Composting with Worms: Why waste your waste' by George Pilkington
