Composting
Turn Your Yard Debris and Food Scraps into Black Gold

The 3 Steps of Composting


  1. 1.CHOP materials if you want to break down more quickly


  1. 2.MIX “browns” (dry, woody materials and autumn leaves) with “greens” (moist, green materials).


  1. 3.MAINTAIN air and water balance by keeping compost as moist as a wrung out sponge.



Browns, Greens, Air and Water are the “big four” that will keep every compost pile happy.
