Tips for Enhancing Your Composting Experience
1. Activate your compost
‘Activators’ can be added to your compost to help kick-start the process and speed up composting. Common compost activator materials include comfrey leaves, grass clippings, young weeds, and well-rotted chicken manure.
2. Create a moveable fresh ground
The soil beneath a compost bin becomes enriched as nutrients filter down with successive waterings. You can place your bin on a plot of earth which you plan to use for a future vegetable or flower bed, or fruit tree. Each year, you can move the bin to a different area, getting a double benefit – the compost from the bin and a bed of nutrient-rich soil ready for new plantings.
3. Minimize unpleasant odors
Unpleasant odors from your compost pile can be a concern, especially in urban and suburban areas with small lots and close neighbors. To reduce or eliminate odors, avoid putting bones or meat scraps into the compost. Additionally, cover new additions to the compost pile with dry grass clippings or similar mulch. Adding lime or calcium can also neutralize odors. If the compost smells like ammonia, add carbon-rich elements such as straw, peat moss, or dried leaves.
