Earth Carers Program

The free training program consists of five sessions over three weeks with a range of guest speakers and covers topics such as:

  • Composting and worm farming;
  • 'Green cleaning' and safe disposal of Household Hazardous Waste;
  • Recycling in the community;
  • Tours of waste management and recycling facilities;
  • The 'big picture' of waste management;
  • Tips and hints for waste reduction; and
  • Ways to encourage others to reduce waste.

On completion of the program, participants are able to work together to educate others in the community in regard to waste and recycling. Earth Carer's also have the opportunities to help out at community events and are invited to social events with other like minded people.


Below is the draft Earth Carer course program for our November 2017 course.
