Compost is decomposed organic material.
If you put your rotten vegetables and peelings and other unwanted plant material into a pile outdoors on top of the soil, worms and microorganisms will help to break it down and turn brown and crumbly. This compost is full of nutrients and perfect to grow new plants and to improve your soil.
It’s the perfect circular system!
A community compost is a great solution for people without a garden or space for compost bins to share a compost bin with their neighbours.
The Brighton and Hove Food Partnership supports nearly 40 community composts. Visit their website to find out more about how it works.
