Earth Carers Course

Are you interested in exploring ways to live more sustainably whilst meeting likeminded people in your community?  Free Earth Carers courses are held regularly for Perth's western suburbs residents giving you the knowledge and skills to live confidently with less waste.  

The Earth Carers course includes five sessions over three weeks (three week nights and two weekend sessions). Our next course will start on Thurs 13 October 2016 - get in touch to register your interest using the form at the bottom of the page and we will send you more information nearer the date. 

Topics include:

  • Tours of waste facilities, community hubs and gardens
  • Demonstrations of reusing organics including worm farming and composting
  • Green cleaning and decluttering ideas
  • Food waste
  • The ‘big picture’ of waste management in Perth and your local council
  • Safe ways to recycle or dispose of difficult items like electronic waste, batteries, fluoros and chemicals

Take a look at the previous course program here.

Upon completing the course you will join the growing Earth Carers community and receive invites to our workshops, tours and more.

“Earth Carers has been my springboard into all sorts of aspects of living more sustainably, particularly in getting to know more people locally.”

“What I have learnt has been transferred to my family, friends and acquaintances.”

“It was a real wake up call to learn in depth about how our waste is conventionally dealt with.”
