    Well done @Larissa
    I would suggest leaving the lid on the bin, this will create more heat and speed up the process.
    I am considering making a compost bin out of recycled wooden pallets. The problem is how to cover […]

  • @Larissa & @Naomi – how are you guys faring with your challenges?

    In reply to: Larissa posted an update Does anyone have advice on composting during a Canberra winter. I have heard I need to keep it quite warm for the break down to start. View

    Hi @Larissa,
    I moved here from Sydney last year and have not made any adjustments really to my composting habits! As Genevieve mentioned, it might be better to locate your compost bin in a sunny spot to keep it warmer during winter. In summer if it gets too dry, you’ll just need to add water to keep it moist. :)

    Hi @Larissa, bad news – unfortunately we haven’t met our minimun number of attendees for this workshop and so it will have to be postponed for now for a future date. We’ll be sure to keep you posted. Hopefully we’ll see you at another workshop beforehand though! :)

  • @Larissa – thanks for the advice! Have successfully switched to Australian Ethical Super! Wish I’d thought of it sooner… really runs under the radar. Am going to encourage friends and family to make the switch […]

    @Larissa – my sister sent me the above link for vegan homemade easter eggs! Haven’t tried them yet, but being vegan and homemade – hopefully they’re more animal friendly and involve less food miles!

    @Larissa – love your vision! I’ll have a bit of a look into it as well – happy to help if you’d like! :)

    Hi @Larissa, I think this is a fabulous idea! Which uni are you at? I’ve heard that some universities already have car-pooling forums set-up, so it may be worth looking into how they’ve run theirs – what’s worked and what hasn’t… might be worth a quick google! I work on the ANU campus so might be able to help you if it’s ANU you’re thinking of?
