Cumbria Master Composters
Established in May 2017 with funding from Cumbria County Council, Garden Organic are recruiting, training and supporting volunteers to promote home composting. As a rural county, food waste collections are not feasible and so a large part of this project is to encourage residents to not only compost the ‘typical’ organic waste items but also cooked food waste in specialist compost bins designed to process it. Alongside trained volunteers active around the county, residents are able to purchase heavily discounted composting bins designed to accept cooked food waste.
