As part of our continued commitment to education in the community, we often welcome school or kindy groups to our processing and retail site in Otaihanga, Kapiti.
School visits to our yard are a great opportunity to educate children from an early age on the importance of green recycling, and helps the kids grasp the importance of how each of us can take responsibility for the future of our planet.
It’s certainly not all doom and gloom, though! In addition to educating kids on greenwaste and responsible recycling, the children enjoy the experience of getting their hands dirty touching the compost and seeing how the process works first hand.
To make arrangements for a school or kindy visit to our main Kapiti HQ, fill in the form at the bottom of this blog post.
In addition to welcoming classes from schools, we are also more than happy to host visits from local green-fingered organisations. In the past, we’ve welcome the Waikanae Gardening Association to our premises for a guided tour of facilities, so that members could witness firsthand the extent of the behind-the-scenes work that goes into producing our quality compost products.
We find adult touring parties often have specific questions over what type of compost or mulch is best for their particular project, or how to best to use our products. We’re delighted to be able to talk compost and gardens with our customers, answer their questions and build relationships within the community.
If you are involved in a group that would be interested in receiving a short tour through our facilities to learn more about what we do here at Composting New Zealand, contact us now to make an enquiry, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
We’re also open to guest speaking at community events, calendar and staff levels permitting.
