Being self-sufficient means turning waste into a resource


If you want to be self-sufficient, you need to turn waste into a resource. Take for example this compost bin. It is a reused paving stone box lined with empty animal feed sacks. The contents are the garden waste from the flowerbeds on Church Green in Whickham. I am one of the volunteers who helps look after the beds. In October all the old plants were stripped out and were taken to my farm. We filled 3 boxes like this. They will rot down over the winter and will be used as raised beds next year. No waste!
