Composting in Kilkenny!

Composting and gardening wildlife workshop for all ages  is to take place on  Saturday the 27th November  11am-1pm at the City Library.

Come along and explore the world of composting.  Learn about the different compost systems available to you and choose the system that best suits your needs.  The workshop will introduce in detail compost bins, leaf mould and wormeries.  For younger composters make your own ‘compost in a bottle’ to take home and watch your organic waste change into a compost for planting your flowers and vegetables.

To encourage wildlife into your garden take home our top ten tips including log piles, nesting boxes and wildlife friendly plants.  A sample of live freshwater invertebrates will help you to learn the benefits of garden ponds while our singing garden birds will help you identify your garden birds.

This event is organised in partnership between Kilkenny County Council and Keep Kilkenny Beautiful for EU Waste Reduction Week. we look forward to seeing you there!
