So you've decided you want to get to grips with composting.  This one hour pre recroded session will set you on your way and teach you how to set up a compost bin, how to look after it and what do when things get smelly or go awry. Great for beginner gardeners, but also very useful to anyone who wants to get the best out of their compost and quickly. 

We will cover what is compost, how it is made, the role of the Carbon : Nitrogen ratio and provide you with a basic compost recipe, including what to do and add to accelerate the composting process.  Not every thing goes to plan, so we will identify the most common problems and remedies so you can set yourself up to succeed with your first new years resolution!

Cutting food waste is the most effective action an individual can take to reduce personal emissions. Kitchen and garden waste make up a large portion of what many households throw into the home garbage bins which creates methane in landfill, a toxic greenhouse gas.  So do your bit and join the composting revolution.
