UC is getting a worm farm!

Come and help us set up UC’s new on-campus worm farm on Tuesday 9 May!

UC Sustainability, Waiutuutu Community Gardens and the UC Compost Club have teamed up with the UCSA to bring a worm farm to the middle of campus.

Come along to the grand opening event and learn how worm farming can reduce food waste, enhance soil health and make you a climate champion! Help us set up the worm farm and have your questions answered by a worm expert.

The Worm Farm Launch event is happening on Tuesday 9 May, 2pm – 3pm, outside Chilton’s Cafe.
