GREEN-FINGERED residents are once again invited to down tools and log on to a virtual composting session next month.

Following the success of previous virtual composting zoom sessions, Dudley Council is again running a free training session for gardening fans on Wednesday May 3 at 7pm.

The free live online tutorial is led by Garden Organic, the National Charity for Organic Growing. They have more than 60 years’ experience of organic growing and composting and run regular online tutorials to help people get the most out of their garden organically.

In the session participants will learn about the benefits of composting to both garden and the environment, how the composting process works, how to compost at home, what can go in a home compost bin and the different types of bins available. 

Attendees on the evening will be entered into a free prize draw courtesy of Great Green Systems. The winner will receive a 330l green johanna hot composter, which composts green material and food waste, including cooked food, dairy, meat and fish.

People can join with cameras off or on and the hosts are happy to answer any questions about composting.

The session will run for around an hour, including a Q&A element.

Anyone wishing to attend should email to register and receive the link.

Places are available on a first come first served basis and people will need to use Zoom to take part.

Confirmation and a link to the webinar will be sent to successful applicants.
