2 Parts Carbon

1 Part Nitrogen


  1. Always start compost pile with a carbon layer first
  2. Keep as moist as a wrung out sponge (not too wet)
  3. Lightly dust with garden lime (Dolomite) once a month
  4. Aerate by mixing thoroughly once every 2 weeks
  5. Keep covered and place in full sun if possible
  6. For best practice use a large variety of Nitrogen and Carbon sources in the correct ratio as stated above
