Composting & Water


Nature started recylcing aeons ago, but when ti comes to vegetable/plant waste, nature’s efforts can be improved (and accelerated) with a little helping hand from man (and woman).


Collecting and conserving water, composting a wide range of wastes and avoiding weekly bonfires is what this topic area is aimed at; there’s some quite techy stuff in here, but don’t let that stop you having a go! Saving the planet is just half of it, you might save yourself a lot of expense too… and gain some well-deserved satisfaction.
