Compost is the backbone of organic/biodynamic gardening and can be started in early spring and continue all the way through to the fall.
WHAT DO I NEED TO MAKE A COMPOST PILE?
All composting needs are three (3) things
1. Browns – including, dead leaves, branches and twigs
2. Greens – including, grass clippings, waste from the garden, fruit scraps and/or coffee grounds (you can include the filters), egg shells.
Your pile should have equal amounts of browns and greens. Alternate layers of brown (provides carbon) and greens (provides nitrogen). Water until moist (not wet).
