Or, if you've got the space but lack the patience for looking after a compost bin or worm farm, trench composting might be your answer. Trench composting is just what it sounds like: A hole dug directly into the garden that becomes a spot to bury food waste. It has the benefits of disguising odours and returning organic nutrients directly back to the earth. In addition, it's easy to create a trench composting plan that rotates waste by using different bury spots to stagger decomposition. Check out this infographic for more details on this, as well as tips on how to use food scraps in the garden without composting them (e.g. egg shells to deter slugs and snails).
Don't forget that even if you can't compost at home, you can always take your scraps to a communal composting hub, like ours at the garden (though it is nearly at capacity!). There are also compost bins in the System Garden on campus, and some councils have community compost hubs that anyone can contribute to.
