Composting at Huxley, School of Environmental Education

Nancy, MCR 2002 convinced the school to compost their experiment garden wastes, and that they could be composted without looking unsightly or smelly right in the garden. These are some clever ways she tucked the composters into the garden plan.

She has some bins set aside for storing leaves that they will use in the spring.

Here's an interesting use for rhubarb leaves. "They make a great cover for the compost," Nancy says. "Within a month, they disappear to nothing, being eaten up by slugs and other critters."
