Celebrate a week of compost
THE Coffs Coast's high, primary and pre-school students are invited to let their imagination run wild during this year's International Composting Awareness Week.
Design and create the best worm farm for the Awareness Week and your school will have the opportunity to win prizes, including a worm farm or compost bin and vouchers from Promised Land Worm Products.
Supported by the Coffs Coast Local Food Alliance, Coffs Harbour City Council, Coffs Regional Community Garden and Promised Land Worm Products, the Worm Farm Competition will give schools an opportunity to build their own worm farm from scratch using recycled and recyclable materials such as old buckets and pots, boxes and plastic pipe and pretty much anything you can find that is recycled.
By taking part in the competition, it's hoped students will learn more about art, the environment - and worms.
All entries built with recycled materials will be displayed and judged at the Coffs Regional Community Garden on May 12.
The winning school will have the opportunity to choose either a worm farm or a compost bin as their major prize.
Schools requiring more information should phone Coffs Harbour City Council on 6648 4645.
