2019 ICAW Workshops

Welcome to International Compost Awareness Week for 2019!

We love compost and worm farming and all things green and growing, so much that we are extending the Awareness ‘Week’ to 2-months once again!

Check out the list of dates below (and also on our Events page) with workshops booked across our region and contact the community group who is organising it to book your place. All workshops are free of charge, but we do need to have an idea of numbers, so please RSVP.

Our very own Captain Compost will be leading these workshops.

He will also have some very exciting news about a new competition. But don’t worry if you can’t attend a session, because we will have all of the information on our social media pages, including our brand new, very own Captain Compost facebook page!
