Greenkeeper of the Year

Greenkeeper of the Year Award CabaritaBest Greenkeeper Cabarita

Our Worm Farm

Our worm farm forms a major part of our green Initiatives program, not only does it recycle the majority of organic kitchen waste, smaller amounts of shredded paper, cardboard and other waste carbon materials once used on site, but it forms the basis of our nutrition and disease and insect suppression program for our greens and surrounds. The material produced in the tubs is high quality compost, which is then used as an ingredient in our compost teas and extracts. This is the fuel for our greens.

Our goal is to reduce our dependency on chemicals and synthetic fertilizers by 10% per year. To date we have exceeded this and no chemicals or synthetic fertilizer have been used on the greens this year.

Our vision is to embrace biology and subsequently research ways that we can provide not only the highest quality playing surfaces in a uniquely sustainable way ,but greatly reduce our maintenance costs, our impact on landfills and significantly improve the health of our environment for players, members and guests.

Worm farm and green initiatives

We endeavour to recycle all our organic matter in the future, and with the support of management ,staff and club members we are well on our way to a more sustainable future .

Recent Green Initiatives

90% of our total kitchen waste is recycled.

4 days a week we recycle all table scraps, 20/30lts a day using the bokashi system and this is later used to create another high quality compost.

All our garden waste is composted (thermal pile) to create yet again another high quality compost.

All our mower clippings if not used in gardens is sprayed with EM (effective microbes) which enables the grass to decompose quicker with no odour ,yet another great soil amendment.

Cabarita Beach Dune Care

Cabarita Beach Dunecare is a volunteer group of local residents who help to manage vegetation along the coastal fringe by removing weeds and exotic species and replanting local native species.

We are an independent group under the auspices of Tweed Landcare who provide expert advice and oversee our finances. The group is actively supported by Tweed Shire Council, Bogangar Public School, Cabarita Beach Bowls & Sports Club and local businesses. We actively seek funding to support our programs.

Recent Projects

In addition to our monthly workgroups, within the last 12 months we have participated in Clean Up Australia Day and also created a Bush Tucker Trail along the hind dunes of South Banksia Forest.

On National Tree Day, students from Bogangar Public School visited our newly created outdoor classroom where they learnt about the traditional uses of bush tucker. They then planted 20 varieties of bush tucker along the trail and participated in an educational plant identification activity. Dunecare also conducted a Bush Tucker activity with visiting Korean students.

Ongoing support from Cabarita Beach Bowls & Sports Club, has allowed us to propagate native plants from seed which has been collected from our coastal dunes and the Wallum Heath.
