Basic Information for Composters
Please help us run a clean system by following these simple guidelines. Anything added to the bin whole will remain whole for months. Please puncture, scratch, cut and chop all material. Mix your compost material with green and brown material. Nitrogen and carbon make the process work.
USE the current bin only. The chalkboard on the shed will direct you. There is usually a “compost here” sign on the bin as well. Any other use will work against the system.
CHOP or puncture your compost material. It is easiest to do this at home. Whole foods remain whole and slow down the process. Because we have a large input level, speedy break-down is essential.
MAKE a hole large enough to accommodate your contribution to the pile. After you dump your material, pull the pile closed again.
ADD sawdust when you have finished and place a brick or two on the edge of the bin lid to keep out rodents. The material to be composed must be covered!
Sawdust can be found in the black garbage bags and/or in the short, black compost bin. If there is none there, please cover your new compost with the oldest compost available. Layering the top with brown material is essential. It is helpful to mix your material with sawdust before you place it in the bin, especially if you have a large volume of material to compost.
You must be a member to compost in the Garden. More information about membership or join online!
