Domestic composting

Domestic composting

The composting is magic and is done quickly if you start with a cubic meter of compost well balanced (3 parts of brown waste for 1 part of green waste).Keep it moist and flip it every week.It is possible to have two good lots of compost each year if you follow these instructions.If you change them, it will just take a little longer, but you can still get some compost.

The fastest way to get compost is to mix 1 part of cut grass for 3 parts of dead leaves (chopped by a clipper), place it in a three-sided composter without lid or bottom, keep it all wetand turn it over with a fork every 15 days.

Place your composter in an easily accessible place so that you and your family are encouraged to use it.

 

Tips

For faster decomposition, put cut leaves and crushed eggshells.

At some point, you will need to start a new compost pile and you will have to stop adding waste to the old pile so that it can "finish".

When the climate is dry, add water every time you throw something into your composter.This will help moisten it.
