Composting is a bit of an obsession here and we’d love it if you love it like we do. It’s great for the environment, your pocket and your garden. It’s easy to get started and make your own valuable garden nutrients. See our guide to get you going. It’s on the downloads page along with lots of other handouts, or watch our composting videos.
