Listen, we get it. Composting can seem super gross. It’s a natural process and while anyone can love seeing nature, sometimes we prefer having a little distance between us and the natural wonders. It's also about breaking habits. It can be a struggle. You eat the banana and you throw away the peel- it's second nature. BING, BANG, BOOM- you did your job and don't have to give it another thought. But there is no such place as “away” when you toss something in the trash. If you were to compost, that peel will break down in 3-4 weeks and help grow more food!
For some this might be in the kitchen and for others, it may be in the bathroom or even bedroom (or all of the above) depending on each person's habits.
So, let's try and take it one step at a time.
You dig a trench—or any shape hole—approximately 12 inches deep in an empty space of your garden, add roughly 4 to 6 inches of compostable materials that you have collected and bury them with the soil you dug out of the trench or hole. The next step is ... well, there is no next step.In the past, you may have had any number of reasons to avoid composting. But with today’s tools, systems, and resources, composting can be a super simple way to bring some sustainable practices to your everyday life.
