What is it?
Composting is the process of making ‘compost’, a natural fertiliser, from organic waste. Composting tries to create suitable conditions to enhance the natural decomposition process of organic waste.
How do you make compost?
The basic steps are:
- Choose and prepare your site (compost heap or customised container)
- Gather your materials (“green” nitrogen rich and “brown” carbon rich matter)
- Add compost materials in layers
- Marketing and sales
