We’ve been operating with two compost bins in the front garden and adding a third compost bin this week. They’re dug down and levelled before filling. The bins on the left hold the “brown stuff”
- straw/manure from the chicken coop
- shredded paper
- torn up cardboard
One bucket of food scraps + one bucket of paper/cardboard + one bucket of straw on top. Continue layers to the top. Turn compost as it heats up. Ready in a few months to spread in our front garden right here or around our property as required.

shredded paper from work makes use of something that would go to landfill otherwise
