What do we put in compost?
Greens: Coffee grounds, grass clippings, weeds, fresh living plants, kitchen vegetable scraps
Browns:Pine Needles, Dead Dried Plant Pieces (Leaves), Egg Shells, Shredded Paper, Saw Dust
Water is necessary because it helps the plants grow.
To avoid in the compost bin
- pet droppings
- diseased plants
Tiny micro organisms go to work bearing down the organic matter into compost.
Such as Millipedes, Sow bugs, Earthworms, etc. do the same.
Helps to not fill up landfills
- compost pockets can be made and they're easy and fun
- worms are the biggest decomposers
- when making a compost bin you need to water as you build
