Composting Workshop May 6

Check out those worms! Our Composted soil is looking not to bad.

A few tips :

1) Cut up the big pieces (we had a large top of a pineapple)

2) Wash and then let dry the egg shells, once dry crush them up  BEFORE adding them to the compost (we didn’t crush ours and after a year they were still like when we put them in)

3) Make sure and layer 50% green  (food wastes, grass, etc) and 50% brown (dry leaves, cut up cardboard , shredded newspaper)

4) NEVER add cooked foot, meat, bread, pasta, rice, fish as these attract rodents
