Composting requires a lot of sun…
as well as shade.

3. Balance it     well
Nature likes a balance of   green and brown.
4. Just add   water
Add water whenyou build your pile
Keep it damp like   a sponge
To bin or not to bin… that is the question.
How do you know if it’s ready?
It should be crumbly and dark brown, and should have a pleasant      earthy aroma.
Troubleshooting
Problem 1: Smell & flies
Problem 2: Not working!
Problem 3:  Rodents
