Compost Central

Educating the need to 'compost on location'


Compost Central is a local education facility, specifically focussed upon the principles of composting and vermiculture composting on-location. The first of its kind in Australia, the learning environment will facilitate purposeful education around the complete cycle of food production, usage, wastage and re-usage. The facilities consist of food-bearing gardens and working composting and irrigation systems.

Informative talks, demonstrations and workshops will be held on a frequent basis, and through these events our instructors will provide valuable, easy and accessible knowledge and hands-on experience for students, in an enjoyable learning environment.

With the intention of establishing at least one facility in each state of Australia, and also internationally, Compost Central facilities provide a ‘show-and-tell’ learning environment for locals and tourists, within any community, to gain value in composting practices specific to their own geographic location.
