Blue Borage is here to help you improve your composting systems. Worm farming, hot compost, green waste management... there's a bespoke system that'll be perfect in your space.

Whether you are looking to cancel your garden waste collection service, or just start using more of the compost you've been making, I'd love to help you start making 'soil with soul'. Alongside composting, I also teach edible gardening: seed sowing, container gardening, hugelkultur, and no-dig gardening — all with the aim of promoting soil health while reducing chemicals and avoiding single-use plastic. Our food system could be localised and circular, and the home garden is a great place to model this.
