Composting

Composting is a bit of an obsession here at REAP. It’s great for the environment, your pocket and your garden. It’s easy to get started and you’ll get free garden nutrients after a few months. See our “Composting Made Easy” guide to get you going. It’s on the downloads page along with lots of other handouts, or watch our composting videos below.

At the bottom of the page, there’s some links to sites to find out more about fancier ways of composting including wormeries, compost bins with jackets, ‘table top composting’ using Bokashi and compost solutions for schools and organisations.

Watch the videos below for a quick review (in Doric if ye wint) and see the links for more information.


Here’s another great video from a Climate Challenge Funded project, South Seeds in Glasgow. Here they show how to make a communal composting bay step by step.

Here are some links to find out ‘heaps’ more about composting at home or in the community or your school.
