How to compost:
• Click here for the steps of starting a compost.
① When using a bin make sure it gets enough oxygen so make holes on the side and at the bottom to drain liquid.
② Start your pile with a generous layer of browns on the bottom.
③ Alternate the layers of greens and browns.
④ You do not have to distribute the layers evenly over the pile, however you should always cover the “greens” with
a generous layer of “browns” to prevent odors and avoid attracting unwanted pests.

Extra information:

• You should use 2 to 3 times as much browns as greens.
• The smaller the material the faster it will break down.
• If you don’t have leaves you can use sawdust, straw, or even shredded newspaper for browns.
• Woody debris and larger material takes a long time to compost.
• A thin layer of soil added on the top of your pile also helps to discourage pests and odors.
