Community Composting Guidelines

Whatever composting system you choose, our guidelines on community composting will help make your project a success.

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.

Sydney City Farm hosts talks about composting and worm farming.

Whatever composting system you choose, our guidelines will help make your project a success.
