What is compost

Composting is nature's way of recycling.

Organic materials break down in the presence of oxygen. Friendly decomposers, including bacteria, fungi and organisms that are easier to see such as worms and woodlice, feed on the organic waste materials you provide - leaving you with some fantastic compost!


It is a completely natural process- and it's easy! All you have to do is create the right conditions, and it will happen with very little effort on your part!


The friendly decomposers are living things and like us they need food, moisture and air to survive. Look after them and they will keep supplying you with wonderful garden compost.
