FOGO stands for Food Organics and Garden Organics and in Randwick, it means you can put your food scraps and garden waste in the same green lid bin.  However if your household has space, composting at home is even better! 

This small change – putting food scraps in the green bin – will have a big difference on our environment. 

Compost may not seem like an exciting gift, but a gardener knows the value of healthy, rich soil. Composting and wormfarming takes your unwanted food scraps and recycles them into nutrients for your flowers and veggies.

Join the Compost Revolution and you can save 80% by completing a quick online quiz.


Native Australian flora (plants) and fauna (animals) come in all shapes and sizes. From a kangaroo paw in a pot to a trip to a National Park, nature can make a great gift. Native plants often need very little water, and attract birds into the garden, creating backyard habitat stepping stones for wildlife.
