Layers make the best compost!

Effective composting is an art, and layering materials in your composter is a key technique for a successful outcome. Whether you're composting garden waste or kitchen scraps, a well-balanced mix ensures optimal decomposition. Begin with a layer of 'greens,' such as kitchen scraps and fresh garden clippings rich in nitrogen, providing a nutrient boost. Follow this with a layer of 'browns,' including dry leaves, straw, or shredded newspaper, high in carbon, to promote a balanced carbon-to-nitrogen ratio. Continue this alternation, aiming for roughly two parts browns to one part greens. The greens activate the composting process, while the browns create aeration and prevent the formation of unpleasant odours. Regularly turning the layers helps maintain a healthy, well-aerated compost pile, ultimately yielding nutrient-rich humus for your garden. Happy composting!
