Compost Simply


Throughout my permaculture garden I have lots of different compost systems and ways to improve the soil. This makes it easy create abundant and healthy food gardens.

My soil improvement strategies include:
  • compost bins
  • compost bays
  • compost piles
  • compost rows
  • hugelkultur
  • vegetative swales
  • chop and drop
  • legumes
  • covercrops/living mulch
  • mulch
  • chickens
  • worm farms
  • worm towers
  • liquid fertiliser
  • bokashi
Compost bin - producing great compost and attracting soil life to the area around it. I'll simply lift the bin off, spread the compost around and make my new no-dig garden here. I move the bin to the next area needing attention and start again. I call it the 'compost tractor'.


I have received many requests to make films about how I compost. This is the first of a new series of films I will make about the compost systems in my garden.

Some of the films I've made before about building soil, soil fertility and worm farming are:

Supporting the development of healthy and alive soil feeds healthy plants and makes healthy food growing simpler.

In this 7 minute film, I explain my approach to using compost bins in my garden and how I make compost in situ. I use my compost bin as a 'compost tractor' - moving it around my garden to places that most need to have a boost.




In the film there is a cameo of one of my regular garden visitors - a kangaroo with a joey in her pouch. Being surrounded by nature is one of the things I love most about my garden and ecovillage life.

I make these films free and keep them ad-free. I did try the ads for a bit, but was so disappointed to see fast food adverts introducing my films about good food and healthy living, that I now refuse to partake. If you like these practical films, consider becoming my patron from $1/month (https://www.patreon.com/moraggamble). Think of it like subscribing to a magazine you like. Here's a bit more about how it works.

  1. Hello Morag,
