Our Community Events

Council is establishing a Community Composting Hub at the Koala Park Community Garden. 

Anyone can get involved by bringing their kitchen scraps to the Koala Park Community Garden!

The Welcome and Information Day is planned for Sunday 19 November 2017 (10am – 12noon) when Council’s Waste Minimisation Education staff will explain how the new facility works, how to convert kitchen scraps into nutrients for the soil, and the correct means of disposing of organic food waste responsibly.

This facility will be for recycling fruit and vegetable scraps only.

Participants can register online now here.  By registering, residents can choose to receive a free kitchen caddy (7lt with lid) for storing and transporting waste. These caddies can be collected from the Moorooka Ward Office after registration.

The Hub will consist of at least 3 large 220lt composting bins. These will be managed by the Koala Park Community Garden volunteers with dry leaf matter available for layering.

The Welcome Day is a FREE event with composting and worm farm displays, free kids activities, and light refreshments provided.  You can also register on the day for a free kitchen caddy.

It is intended to encourage residents to incorporate composting as part of their daily routine, thereby reducing greenhouse gases and waste to landfill. NO bookings are required to attend the Welcome Day.
