I attended the Compost Doctor Training in March and learnt
about several different ways to make compost, for example using a
compost tumbler, wormery, New Zealand composter or a green cone. I
never realised there were so many different ways to turn your
vegetable peelings into good stuff for the garden! I found out
where I was going wrong with my composting. In future I will be
adding lots of air to the mix by putting in cardboard, paper and
twiggy material. I will also try leaving grass cuttings on the
lawn, apparently it will give the earth below extra
For anyone who wants to learn more about composting take
a look at the Recycle Devon website. There is even the
chance to win a free compost bin!
Also recommended is the 'Composting for All' booklet by Nicky
Scott. The Waste Action Group does have a number of these
booklets and will be giving them out at our next event.
NOTE: Crediton Garden Club will be holding a talk on
composting on Tue 25th April at Crediton Library at 7.30 p.m.
Anyone is welcome to attend.
