Leaving a legacy by composting
Every day, half of what gets thrown into your bin could actually be turned into nutrient-dense organic compost which is basically nature’s fertilizer. By starting a compost, you could save money on chemical fertilizer, make your yard look amazing and feel good about yourself by doing something great for the planet. All around win.
What would happen if everyone composted?
According to the Composting Council, if everyone in the United States composted all of their food waste, the impact would be equivalent to removing 7.8 million cars from the road. In addition to the greenhouse gas benefits, composting at UCSF contributes to a closed-loop system.
“composted organic waste is a very valuable resource. It can be used to feed your garden, potted plants, greenhouse plants, window-box flowers etc”
Is Composting easy?
Yes 100% but it takes a little effort and learning to do it properly. For me composting is second nature and its something I’m very passionate about. As a child I remember My father building an area in the garden for all the food waste and leftovers from the garden. I was always amazed to see it turning it into the soil. It may be where my passion for composting and worms came from.
As a gardener or non-gardener, there is nothing nicer to see how nature can turn foods & pater waste into soil/compost it is truly amazing.

“If you had asked me a year ago what I thought about composting, I would have gave you a strange look and said nothing. Absolutely nothing. I didn’t know how to make a compost. I didn’t know what to put in a compost. And I definitely did not know why composting was important” But after watching some of Ollie’s videos and arranging a 1-1 video call with Ollie to help me kick started my composting journey. Now thanks to Ollie’s help I have been making my own compost for over a year, I consider myself a composting connoisseur. And have my own homemade wormery thanks for all your help Tracey Mc Williams UK
