Rotline Question of the Week: How do I start composting?

This is a very common question. The best way to get started is to attend a Composting Workshop. Workshops include information about choosing a bin, how to get started, and how to maintain compost bins and worm bins. One thing to consider when getting started is what type of material you have on hand. If you have a lot of yard trimmings, grass clippings, and food scraps or coffee grounds, a Soil Saver compost bin will probably fit you best. If you have food scraps and coffee grounds, paper, and a limited amount of space, a Wriggly Wranch Worm Bin is great. Some people prefer using both. Both bin are available for purchase from Solana Center. Soil Savers can compost more material than worm bins, but worm bins produce worm tea in addition to vermicompost.

Our Compost it Yourself page has more information on composting and vermicomposting. If you have any questions, please contact us.
