Composting with Care

Composting is easy way to turn household trash into a rich organic material for gardening. 
Items to add to compost include:
*coffee and filters *tea bags *tissue *toilet paper rolls *left over, burnt, mouldy food *pet hair *dust and material from vacuum cleaner *leather straps and gloves *nut, egg, fish shells *tobacco waste *envelopes, bills, tickets *dead flies *comics *pet hair and droppings *dead plants *wool socks *saw dust *milk products *pencil shavings *shoe soles *pine needles/grass clippings *old spices *post it notes *gelatine *moss *ground rock *feathers *beer *aquarium plants *leaves *soil or earth 

Collect materials in a wood or plastic bin or a hand dug trench, add water. 
It is important to mix and stir the compost once a week. 
For best results, keep a small compost bin indoors which can be dumped into the larger outdoor bin. 
Kids learn to love the collecting of materials, the emptying of the bin, watering and stirring and can take responsibility for these chores :-)
