What is it?
Compost is created by recycling yard and kitchen
wastes which decompose into a rich, Dark crumbly
substance that can be added to naturally enrich
the soil for planting.

Compost is a valuable resource
Instead of needlessly filling our landfills with
garbage , people are realizing they can impact
the environment in a positive way by creating
compost.

Composting Fundamentals
To have a successful compost pile you need three
basic things
5
1.Air
Composting Microbes are Aerobic. They need air
to do their work. Otherwise the anaerobic
microbes take over and make your pile smelly.

2. Water
Your pile should be as moist as a wrung-out
sponge to decompose properly. Too wet or too dry
will not allow the microbes to work properly.
7
3.Food
Your pile needs two kinds of food
Browns. such as dry and dead plant material.
Autumn leaves, straw, and wood chips.
Greens. Such as fruit and vegi scraps, green
leaves, manure, and grass clippings.

Now Give your Pile an occasional turn, and let it
cook, and youll end up with black gold.
