Composting For Beginn​ers Workshop @ UBS AG

We were invited to conduct a Composting For Beginners workshop for 40 participants at UBS AG.

Our workshop was part of its annual eco event for its staff and employees. Held during lunchtime, food was provided by UBS AG that allowed participants to enjoy a relaxing and casual time while learning how to compost.

The 1-hour workshop included an interactive quiz segment where participants won prizes by answering questions. They also enjoyed the opportunity to interact with composting worms using disposable gloves and sticks provided by the workshop instructor.

Here are some pictures of the event:
