What do you do with your banana peels?

Here at True Botanica, we give our banana peels to one of the coworkers, Heidi for her compost. Read on as Heidi shares how she and her family compost year round.Compost Bin

“‘Tis the season for composting, but in my house, compost season lasts all year long thanks to the creepie crawlies that live in my basement!  Any vegetable scraps from the kitchen (orange peels, apple cores, corn cobs, even shredded newspaper) go into our “worm bin”, and after a few weeks, all this waste is transformed into a dark, rich, odor-free compost!  This form of composting, known as “Vermicomposting”, is a great way we reduce our waste output and also make wonderful natural fertilizer for the garden.”
