Croydon Food Swap

Promotes and encourages sustainable gardening

Recycling challenge finalists

The challenge closed Monday 20th April and I’ve been mulling over which entries to pick for voting.  So here they are…

Option A – From Joan and it was the very first entry
Cut the bottom out of a few old, large buckets and almost bury each one vertically in the ground. Add mainly kitchen food scraps, placing in a different bucket each time so that one doesn’t fill up too quickly. Cover each bucket with a barrier like a piece of flat metal to keep out snails, rodents etc and maybe a brick. When each one is almost full, pull out the bucket and cover the new compost heap with a layer of soil. This method is good for quite small gardens like mine. Pictured – a buried silver cylinder (lining from a rubbish bin) covered with a discarded electric frypan lid.

Option B – From Jess and it was the very last entry
See her detailed post here.
