Return to the soil

Backyard composting is a process that allows you to decompose some of your table scraps and yard waste.  This is done by a layering process so everything decays into fertile humus (or new soil).

Composting at home reduces your personal volume of trash, conserves water, increases plant growth and replaces the need for harsh chemical fertilizers and pesticides. It is a fun and simple activity that allows you to do something for the part of the Earth you live in everyday: your own backyard!

How it can be done in Bermuda:
The Marsh Folly Composting Facility is used as a commercial composting facility where horticultural waste and food scraps from restaurants and cruise ships are composted.  Organic waste is formed into rows of long piles called "windrows" and aerated by turning the pile periodically by either manual or mechanical means.  The ideal pile height, which is between 4 and 8 feet, allows for a pile large enough to generate sufficient heat and maintain temperatures, yet small enough to allow oxygen to flow to the windrow's core.  The ideal pile width is between 14 and 16 feet.   The end product is a soil amendment that has been used to restore the Marsh Folly site and that is also available to the public for horticultural practices.

Did You Know?
The Marsh Folly Composting Facility currently accepts between 60 to 80 tonnes of organic waste per day!

All plates, bowls, cutlery, napkins and other service items used at today’s GreenRock Free Festival are Biodegradable?

About Greenrock
