Schools and ECE Video Competition

Update 9 April 2021: Thanks for your interest. This competition is now closed and judging is underway. Please check back for the announcement of our winner. Make sure to follow us on Facebook as well, to see the winning entry.

We’re inviting schools and early childhood education facilities across Auckland to enter our Win A Bathtub Worm Farm competition.

If your school or ECE facility wants to get started with composting, just make a short video telling us why your school should win a bathtub worm farm. There’s a great prize up for grabs – a bathtub worm farm (made by our friends at Massey Men’s Shed), worms to get your farm started and support from your local Compost Collective tutor, to help you and your school get the worm farm up and running.

Find out more about getting started with composting in your school here.

When your school composts, you’re helping keep food scraps out of landfill. This helps ensure these valuable nutrients aren’t lost forever, and reduces production of methane in landfills. It’s widely acknowledged as one of the easiest things we can do to combat the climate emergency.

Good to know
