Worm farming and composting

What is worm farming?

Worm farming is a simple way of converting food scraps and other organic material into a nutrient rich liquid run-off and organic fertillser called worm castings.

Please see the Worm Farming brochure for more information.

What is composting?

Home composting is a simple process where naturally occurring bacteria and fungi breakdown organic matter - such as food scraps and garden organics - into a nutrient rich soil-like material that can be used to create and maintain a healthy and sustainable garden that requires less water.

Compost is best dug into the ground where it provides the greatest benefit to plants.

Please see the Compost Brochure below for more information.
