Compost bins

Composting your food scraps, grass and garden clippings can provide you with an excellent source of free garden food and soil improver.

As well as creating great fertiliser, composting reduces greenhouse gases, saves water and dramatically reduces your waste.

Compost Bin 220 litre               $59.50

Compost Mate (hand turner)     $22.00

All things for worm farms

Composting and worm farms are a simple and easy way to turn kitchen and garden scraps into rich organic soil known as humus. Compost and worm castings make great fertilisers and soil conditioners. They add nutrients to the soil and worm farms generate a liquid fertiliser for plants.

A worm farm is a specialised composting container in which worms do much of the work. The container needs to have drainage holes, a lid to allow aeration and be located where it does not get too hot or too cold.

You can put in kitchen scraps, garden waste, paper, grass clippings, tea bags, coffee grinds; in fact just about anything that is organic.

At Edendale, we have several large worm farms for disposing of some of our waste and we breed worms which are available for sale.

  • Worm Factory                          $93.50
  • Worms 250g (1000 worms)     $55 when available ( please call for info)
