Why should you attend this workshop:
Because you will be your family's super hero! Far out you say - we say, decide for yourself :
For starters composting helps in reducing global warming. How? When we dispose waste, it usually ends up in huge landfills which lack sunlight and oxygen, resulting in degradation (not decomposition) of the waste, which in turn produces Methane, a green house gas which is far more toxic than Carbon dioxide.
Growing your own Organic food
Composting naturally leads to gardening, gardening leads to flowers and eventually fruits and vegetables. You can grow your own fruits and vegetables in the nutrient rich soil translates to your very own -home grown -Organic food
A Green lifestyle
A green life style in true sense. When was the last time you planted a tree or consciously avoided using products which cause environmental harm? Lets face it , rarely or whenever the opportunity presents itself in the larger social circle. By composting you will start to adapt to a truly green lifestyle and see through so many possibilities.
Leading by example
A good leader leads by example and since you are the commander in chief of your household , you will be inculcating a self sustainable green ecosystem for years to come.
Learning a new skill
It always good to learn new skills. This one ensures you and your family have a healthy mind and body. Whats more it will also save you significant cost in the long run.
Hmm, Alright so is this complicated?
The process of composting (making manure/fertiliser out of the food waste we throw away) is:
- It saves us the cost of store-bought fertilisers
- Is absolutely natural (chemical free)
- Is great for the environment
- Is great for the plants at our homes
- Is great for wellness
Participants are requested to have these items handy:
- Bucket (will teach where to make holes in them)
- Dry leaves/cocopeat
- Kitchen waste
- One handful soil (preferably from under an old tree)
Hmmm looks like this is doable, but how do we compost?
Join us for a online interactive program via zoom on the 22 August 2020 from 4-5 PM to start composting !
