Composting and Carers Groups

In recent weeks I have given three sessions for different carers groups. All, being people of a certain age (shared by me) where shocked by the amount of food waste in the UK and how rather than being the fault of farmers and retail we as consumers are to blame.

One interesting point that arose today was what to do if you are a lifelong composter but can no longer  garden so do not   use the compost. The kitchen waste continues as is the urge to compos it rather than send it to landfill. I have suggested that they try to interest a local garden club which might have members  who would help out. Other ideas are welcome.

I am now working on a new page on composting  toxic plants and wood. Suggestions welcome
