Compost

Casa Spinneyhead still throws away a lot of perfectly good composting material, so I’m looking at ways to utilise it.

Hippyshopper recommends wormeries, but I’m working on a budget. Recyclemore.co.uk has cheaper options. The Community Composting Network has resources if I wanted to get my neighbours to muck in. Allegedly the council has a scheme where I can get cheap compost boxes, but the number on the website has been disconnected, so that’s not much use. They do run the Kerb it green waste recycling service, but we’re obviously not in any of the chosen pilot areas.

To conclude- it’s off to B&Q I go!

UpdateJeff pointed me to this easy DIY wormery, and I found the Green Cone, designed to speed up the composting through solar heating and insulation and feed the nutrients direct into your soil.
