By now we are all aware of the benefits of composting. In fact, compost is the single most important supplement you can add to your garden, whether big or small. No wonder they call compost "black gold". And, you can make it yourself.

If you're a bit to dainty for composting, simply fill your leaf sack with Autumnal leaves, tie and stack them out of sight. The following autumn use them as mulch or another year later as a soil conditioner
Dimensions: 55cm x 90cm per sack. includes 10 sacks
The Dirt on Composting
What is composting anyways? Compost offers a chemical-free fertilising alternative for lawns and gardens. Applied to garden beds it helps aerate soils, break down organic materials for plant use, and ward off plant disease.
These bags are perfect for Carbon-rich garden branches, stems, dried garden leaves, peels, bits of wood, bark dust or sawdust pellets, shredded brown paper bags, corn stalks, coffee filters, coffee grounds, conifer needles, eggshells, straw, wood ash. They give compost its light, fluffy body.
A healthy compost pile should have much more carbon than nitrogen so use a one-third green and two-thirds brown materials ratio in your compost bin, compost heap, or compost trench. The green ratio relation to nitrogen or protein-rich matter such as manure, food scraps, green lawn clippings, kitchen waste, and green leaves. These are the raw materials for making enzymes.
So think twice about what you put in your green bin. Chances are, your very own plants can utilise it.
Why not offer some to your composting neighbour, or, as they say, many hands make light work, so perhaps start a neighbourhood composting collective. Sydney's Inner West council has created many composters in this urban but green-savvy enclave?
