Composting at home is pretty simple, and you can get started for free! I’ve broken it all down below to get you started and on your way to your own compost pile.

How to Start to Composting

There are actually a few different composting methods to choose from when starting out. The easiest and cheapest method is called heap composting.

Heap composting is great for newbies, as you can start the pile right in your backyard. You can start it without any structures, right on top of the soil.

Step 1: Choosing a location for your compost pile

The best location is one that gets partial shade and sun. An area that gets good drainage is also ideal.

Step 2: Adding your organic materials

It’s time to start building the pile. You can add things like fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, eggshells, and more.

The following materials are all carbon-rich:

– wood chips – dried leaves – coffee grounds – eggshells – shredded newspaper – straw/hay – pine needles – corn husks – wood ash
