Composting

Do the quiz

Compost works by aerobic decomposition (breaks down with air) which creates heat. It needs garden materials as well as food scraps.

Composting suits if you

  • have garden materials (you need twice as much as your food scraps).
  • have space on bare earth to put the compost bin.
  • are in a household with more than two people.

The benefits are

  • you can add a greater variety of food and other materials than in a wormfarm including garlic, onion and citrus.
  • you can recycle your garden materials.
  • you can add larger volumes of materials.

Wormfarming

Do the quiz

Wormfarming works by worms and other micro-organisms eating the food. You don’t need to add garden materials.

Wormfarming suits if you

  • don't have any garden materials to get rid of.
  • don't have access to any bare earth.
  • have a small household or you don’t produce a lot of food scraps.

The benefits are

  • you can collect the liquid and soild fertilisers from your wormfarm.
  • you can keep your wormfarm in a courtyard, on a balcony or even inside.
  • you don’t need to add garden materials.
