There are different methods of composting, including traditional composting, vermicomposting (using worms), and bokashi composting. Choose a method that suits your needs and space.
If you have a backyard, you can create a compost pile on the ground. Alternatively, you can use a compost bin, which can be purchased or made at home. Choose a location that is easily accessible.
Collect all organic waste like fruit and vegetable, eggshells, coffee grounds, tea bags, leaves, and grass clippings. Avoid meat, dairy, and oily foods as they take longer to decompose.
To create a good balance, add dry leaves, twigs, and shredded newspaper to your compost pile.
Layer the organic waste and carbon-rich material in your compost bin, mixing them thoroughly. Keep the pile moist, but not too wet.
To speed up the composting process, turn the compost pile every week or two. This helps to mix the materials and provide oxygen to the microorganisms that break down the waste.
Depending on the method and conditions, compost can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to mature. You will know it’s ready when it’s dark brown, crumbly, and smells earthy.
Once the compost is mature, use it to enrich your soil, feed your plants, and reduce the need for chemical fertilizers.
