Herb and vegetable garden
Growing herbs and vegetables in a small or large space close to the kitchen is so convenient and tastes great too. Everyday herbs like basil, chives, mint, rocket can be picked daily and added to meals.
This small garden could be as simple as a patch of dirt with compost and organics added to it, or it could take the form of a no dig garden with the top made up of lucern hay.

Everyday herbs and vegetables planted in a garden or pots close to the kitchen / back door. This allows easy access when preparing meals. This part of the garden is known as zone 1.
Worm farms and compost bins can be placed close to the back door or they can be situated further away in appropriate places.
We always like to begin with a compost bin. At least 2. While one is composting you can be filling the second with all the kitchen scraps. Anything that was once living can be put into a compost bin.e.g. egg shells, apple cores, hair, tea bags, vegetables. However don't put in meat or citrus. Orange and lemon peels can be buried in the garden.
Worm farms are a good way of composting and can be placed in the shade. Worm farms are ideal for balconies or shady spots.
