Whether your interest lies in food growing, wildlife gardening or creating picture-perfect flower beds, composting could be your missing link.
Categorised as green or organic waste, our food scraps and garden cuttings are anything but rubbish! When allowed to recycle naturally, these become a great source of nutrients which will fertilize your garden and provide food and habitat for visiting wildlife.

Nature has long been known to lift our mood and during the last year the power of nature to improve our spirits has never been more important.
