GuruJal team organised a workshop on the topic “Composting about how to turn Waste into a Resource” with women of Self Help Groups in Hariahera, Tajnagar and Palasoli village of Gurugram district- supported by Hyundai Motor India Foundation. Composting is the natural process of recycling organic matter, such as leaves and food scraps, into a valuable fertilizer that can enrich soil and plants. The workshop was facilitated by Seema Jaswal – Community Development Specialist. 210+ women actively participated throughout the workshops in all three villages and pledged to convert their household waste into the compost.
The main points of this workshop are as follows.
- How to segregate the waste into wet garbage and dry garbage
- Management of waste at the domestic level
- Connect the composting with livelihood for SHGs
