You can reduce your waste by up to half simply by composting or worm farming food scraps and garden cuttings. It's easy, fun and a great way of making free natural fertiliser for your plants.
Composting suits households with a backyard and a sunny spot, and will require turning every week to keep aerated. The compost can be used back on your garden, especially around vegetable crops.
A worm farm suits households with small balconies or courtyards as they use a small space. They’re also very popular with children and can be an interesting ‘pet’ to observe. The primary product of a worm farm is the ‘worm juice’ that can be diluted with water and used on pot plants or gifted to a friend.
Compost bins and worm farms are available from most nurseries or garden supply stores, or from a range of online retailers for example, ​www.compostrevolution.com.au/australia-wide
