This green bin is essential for any garden. You can get them from most hardware shops and some nurseries for about R600.
I’ve always had a compost heap but this bin keeps any food waste away from the monkeys and the heat it generates speeds up the composting process. I put grass cuttings, weeds and any organic waste from the kitchen into and in a few months it turns into good quality compost.
I’m now thinking of investing in an earthworm farm, which I think creates compost in only a couple of weeks and provides micronutrients that you don’t get from compost. Any thoughts?
