Composting

Composting is a great way of turning food scraps and organic garden waste into compost by composting:

  • You can improve the quality of your soil and overall garden vitality by releasing the rich nutrients from the compost into the soil of your garden.
  • You help with preventing greenhouse gas emissions by encouraging the aerobic breakdown of organic material and reduces the amount of garden and kitchen waste going to landfill.
  • You can recycle valuable nutrients and eliminate the use of artificial fertilisers, something that is vital when keeping chooks, bees and fish.

We utilise three forms of composting in our yard there generally isn’t a lot left over for the compost bins once the chooks have had their fill.
