You have to have your own garden of course. Every single person is responsible for how we treat our soil and the environment, to safeguard it for the future generations to come and see. We can grow our own vegetables and fruits the organic way.
Our soil should always be pesticide free. Our healthy soil definitely needs to be maintained with recycled materials and compost. Now compost is not as hard as you think. It's really easy to make. Get any large container to make your compost bin and let it sit directly to the soil so any liquid produce that the matierial brakes down can drain away. so it's best not to put on paving or concrete.
So what can you compost? anything that is on living origin. Vegetable and fruit peelings that you can get easily from your kitchen is very good for composting. Do not add meat scraps or cooked food in your compost bin.Paper likes cardboard boxes, egg trays , kitchen paper, and general low grade paper can be used as well.Crumpled the paper before putting to the compost bin, this is better than shredding it, or cutting it.
Leaves and plants are also good for composting. Compost should be dark,rich sweet smelling and crumbly.Remember that the compost is used to condition your soil and to add for your pots as well.So now you can start to grow your own garden with healthy soil.
