Reducing waste is incredibly important for our planet and you might be surprised by how much of our rubbish is food scraps. With more and more people starting their very own veggie patches we thought we would share a little tutorial on composting.
Food scraps can be used to help make your garden grow, so you can help the environment and your garden at the same time by composting.
1. Make or buy a compost bin, you can make a simple one out of chicken wire
2. Add brown ingredients such as leaf and garden litter
3. Add green materials from your kitchen, food scraps, egg shells but no meat
4. You need to keep turning your compost heap to aerate it and keep it moist and it will produce compost in a few months which is filled with nutrients and awesome for your garden.

We have recently started a compost bin and I am looking forward to spreading the first compost on our vegetable patch!
