About the event
Ever wanted to know exactly where your waste goes, or how to run a low waste household? Do you want to compost like a pro or get the secrets to green cleaning?
Join us for the City’s Earth Carers course. We will uncover the mysteries of waste on a global, national and local level. We will get hands on with waste with interactive sessions, behind the scenes tours and field trips, workshops, demos and giveaways. The course runs for five sessions starting on Thursday 15 October.
Amy and Christine have both worked in the waste industry for several years. Amy’s focus is on organics and Christine’s is on plastics and litter. Together they make a great team and will be able to answer all your questions. We will also hear from the City of Cockburn’s Waste Education Team. Light supper is included in evening sessions and morning teas in Saturday sessions.
