Council Workshops & Subsidies
Throughout 2021, The Worm Shed will be working with the Cities of Canning, Cockburn, Kalamunda, Kwinana, Melville and Swan to provide worm farming workshops.
Residents of the above councils, who attend our workshop in these locations, are eligible to purchase the complete worm farm package at a heavily discounted price thanks to their council's subsidy. This package includes everything you need to get started, including worms.
Some of these councils also provide a subsidy for worms alone, for those who already have a worm farm but need worms to start/top up, for a dog poo disposal, to use in compost heaps, or to add to your garden. To find out about the subsidies that your council has to offer, visit their website for full details.
Although the Cities of Vincent and Nedlands are not currently running workshops, residents of these councils are still able to purchase a discounted worm farm through the council. Town of Cambridge also has a worm farm rebate for residents.
If your local council doesn't feature in our upcoming events list, go ahead and contact them, to let them know that you would like to see them get on board with The Worm Shed's council workshops program.
Our work shops feature a presentation covering all aspects of worms, worm farming and the roles worms play in recycling and waste management. This is followed by an informal question time and a practical demonstration in setting up, operating and maintaining a worm farm.
Worm Cafe worm farms are available to purchase at the work shops, along with our other products including worms, Castings, Worm Wiz and more!
If you already have a worm farm, but it doesn't seem to be working efficiently, or you just have some questions, we'll be more than happy to answer them for you and help you get your worm farm back on track.
