Biggest, Most Happenin’ Compost Booth!

We’ve got some exciting updates, complete with hundreds of pictures! This year, we hosted our biggest compost booth yet at the Edusave Merit Bursary Ceremony.

The theme was on living clean and green, where we showcased practical ways to care for our environment through do-it-yourself composting.

Held over 2 days at Jurong Green Community Club, about 2,000 kids and adults enjoyed:

  • Live composting worms
  • Live Black Soldier Fly grubs
  • Do-It-Yourself compost bin made up of simple everyday materials
  • Free colourful handouts on how to compost at home
  • Fun-loving facilitators who were happy to answer every query and share great facts about composting
  • Eye-opening videos about various composting methods
  • Activities and quizzes with prizes
  • Freebies!
  • Lively round-the-clock music and emcee

Young and elderly alike experienced plenty of hands-on fun at our booth, and witnessed a whole new world of sustainable living.

On top of that, we conducted several 30-minute introductory workshops on DIY composting and vermicomposting in the auditorium. Families and communities learned what composting is all about, its multitude of benefits, and how it can be done even in high-rise apartments.

Well, let these pictures do the talking! We’ve also uploaded them to our Facebook page here. Tag your family and friends if you spot them!
