What are the benefits of compost?
- 'Green ingredients' such as kitchen scraps, fresh lawn clippings, weeds pulled from your garden - they supply nitrogen to the compost. If all you have is green stuff, your compost will turn into a stinky slime ball!
- 'Brown ingredients' that supply the compost with carbon for energy (heat). These items are often drier than the green ingredients, leaves, branches, straw, etc.
- Oxygen to enable the decomposition process (turn your compost regularly, or take the Death Star for a roll!)
- Water, compost should be moist, but not soaking wet.
