Composting is a great way to use food waste that may otherwise go to landfill. The compost you can create is good for the soil and very handy when growing your own food.
Your community composting project could be a compost bin in a community garden, a shared worm farm in an apartment block or school, or perhaps a compost system used by a group of local businesses.
Whatever composting system you choose, our guidelines will help make your project a success.
Plan of management
Before you get started, you need to show us a plan of management. You don't need to start it from scratch, we've put together a plan of management template you can use.
