Tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m a primary school teacher.

When did you start composting?

Started composting a couple years ago. I was back up home in Te Tai Tokerau, and there just happened to be a compost bin.

Why do you do it?

I compost to cut down on the waste that will end up in landfill. Also so I get loads of dreamy compost for the garden.

What do you love about it?

I think it’s pretty cool that you’re turning all your scraps into compost. Rather than just throwing it away.


The Compost Collective runs free composting workshops all across Auckland. Participants get a $40 discount voucher to use on a compost system that suits them.
