Curly Community Compost

Composting is a great way to turn your fruit & veg scraps into rich soil matter. 

If you don't have your own compost bin or worm farm, why not participate in the garden's Curly Community Compost program? You'll be helping the garden while reducing the amount of waste being sent to landfill. 

Guidelines for participation

To participate in the program, drop by the garden during one of our working bees, Saturdays 9-11am or Wednesdays 3-5pm, to undergo a brief orientation.

To ensure the health of our compost, participants are kindly asked to:

  • Fill your bucket with FRUIT & VEG scraps only
  • Only drop off FRESH scraps!
  • Cut up big pieces, as these break down more quickly.
  • Empty your filled bucket into one of the FEED ME compost bins at the garden, following the instructions on the lid. Add plenty of the provided brown materials, or the compost becomes smelly!
  • Wash your own bucket (at the garden or at home), bring it home and fill it again!
  • NO rice, pasta, bread, dairy, meat, etc.
  • NO plastic, stickers, elastics....
  • NO large fruit pits, corn cobs...
  • NO compostable non-food items, including compostable bags, coffee pods and take-away containers
  • NO smelly, soupy or mouldy scraps, as they make the compost smell!

For more information or if you are interested in participating but unable to drop by during a working bee, please contact us at
