Compost bottles - Tractor Ted Farm School

Tractor Ted is helping to make silage. Silage is fermented from crops and used to feed cattle during winter. The process of silaging is not dissimilar to the process of composting, although silage feeds animals while compost feeds plants. Making compost in a bottle is a straightforward activity and gives children the chance to see how organic matter breaks down over time. Try the following with your children and show them how vegetable scraps can be turned into rich, dark compost for growing seedlings.
