Each year, over half our waste is made up of food and garden organics! Composting is a simple, natural process that breaks down organic matter into a crumbly dark brown material that you can use on the garden. Compost improves soil, assists plant growth, reduces water runoff, saves you money on buying soil improvers and fertilisers, and reduces waste to landfill. All the more reason to get composting!
This year we’re celebrating International Compost Awareness Week by offering you the following:
