Composting Week at Snowy River

ABC Kids TV sensation Dirt Girl helped children enjoy community celebrations during composting week in Snowy River. Two shows were held in Berridale and Jindabyne on the southern tablelands of NSW, and Dirt Girl also made a surprise visit to the children at Snowy Mountains Day Care.

The show comprised Dirt Girl performing some songs from her hit TV show and the children enjoyed dancing along.

Council's Sustainability Environment Coordinator Margie Ferguson talked to the kids about compost and worm farming. The children played a game about recycling and also helped set up a worm farm and got to see the worms in action.

Snowy River Shire Council donated a worm farm to the kindergarten classes at Jindabyne Central School to help them extend their learning about composting and resource recovery.
