Council Work Shops & Subsidies


What a bumper year 2019 is proving to be for worm work shops!

Due to an overwhelming response from ratepayers & residents attending the workshops over the past 4 years, the City of Swan are running their Thinking Green Workshops again this year along with their worm farm subsidy for residents & ratepayers in attendance.

2019 will also include regular workshops for The Cities of Cockburn, Melville, Canning, and Kwinana. Residents of these councils, who attend a workshop in these locations, are eligible to purchase the complete worm farm package at heavily discounted prices.

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 (Town of Cambridge also has a worm farm rebate for residents). Various other councils, such as City of Rockingham, hold occasional workshops with us, too... so keep an eye on our events calendar for a workshop near you!

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 Presentation

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.
