INFO SHEET: Creative composting
by Russ Grayson, updated May 2020.
Composting turns our kitchen and garden wastes into plant food:
- almost 50 percent of waste produced in the home can be composted — composting is a do-it-yourself approach to reducing our waste
- making compost avoids the need to buy fertiliser.
You can make compost in commercially available plastic compost bins, in large bays, or heaps.
Community gardeners need large bays to produce enough compost for the garden.
