Who might want my compost?
February 13, 2011 3:43 AM   Subscribe

I'm moving interstate and don't want to take my compost + worms with me, but I don't want to just throw it away. Any suggestions for how to find people who might want it?

It is not a whole lot of compost, probably 50-100L max, but I have grown quite emotionally attached to the worms and want them and the fruits of their labor to go to a good home!

The place I am renting right now doesn't have a garden for me to mix the compost into, just rocks and my small potted plants.

Try Freecycle. I've used it in Canberra for things like that.

Or Gumtree perhaps?

Give the compost away and free the worms.

Try a local gardening club. This is where my mother in law ordered her worms, so I'm betting they will have interested members.

Joe Chip, I'm in Melbourne, and desperately want to start composting but have been scared to start. I'd be happy to give your worms and compost a good home, and have a nice garden they can live in! Let me know! :)

I found my beloved compost on craigslist. It was a gift of love and I was so happy to find it. It is so cool to pass along something as fundamental as dirt. I still email the guy who gave it to me from time to time.

Good suggestions guys, I have sent shazzam! a mefi mail, and if they don't reply I'll try other avenues you have suggested.
