Composting


 

What is compost?

Composting is an organic method of decomposing organic solid waste and is rich in nutrients. Making homemade compost can benefit you in many ways. Composting at home can reduce your household waste up to 20%- 60% every month. There are so many items that you can use for compost- grass cutting, leaves, trimmings, prunings, vegetables, pasta, cat food, coffee, rice, stale cereal, old herbs and spices, pizza crusts, wine corks, bamboo skewers, hair from your hairbrush, old cotton clothing, old paper documents, sticky notes, nail clippings, cardboard egg cartons, used paper napkins, loose leaf tea and many more. This process recycles various organic materials!

 Composting is a transformation from death to life. Homemade garden compost is made over a period of 2 to 12 months and is rich in nutrients and friendly bacteria, fungi, protozoa and actinomycetes. Composting at home is a great way to save money from household waste and also to improve your garden!
