Compost demonstration at Urangan's botanic gardens on Friday
FRASER Coast residents wanting to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle are invited to a Compost Revolution demonstration and workshop at the Hervey Bay Botanic Gardens on Friday, July 19, from 10-11.30am.
Host and Fraser Coast Regional Council horticulturist Lynda-Joy Dunlea said the demonstration was open to people of all ages.
"I'll be showing people how to compost properly including trouble-shooting common problems," she said.
"Fraser Coast residents can also purchase their own compost bins at a reduced rate through the Compost Revolution program and have them delivered to their door."
Entry is a gold coin donation and includes a cup of tea or coffee.
Councillor for education and training Robert Garland said the Compost Revolution program has proved successful in a number of local government areas across Australia.
"It's a great initiative," he said.
"We've also approached local businesses to get on board and promote their products including compost bins and worm farms as part of the program.
"An increasing number of people across the Fraser Coast are really embracing sustainable living practices and this is a great way for even more residents to get involved."
