Help your kids develop their green thumb by teaching them to compost. Composting is a fun family project that’s easy to do and great for the environment. Teach your tykes how simple it is to recycle waste material and turn it into nutritious soil for your yard or plants.    

The micro-organisms that make the compost need an even mixture of “greens” and “browns.” They also need water and air for a perfect compost formula. Here’s the compost recipe:

One part “brown” (dead dried plants – they provide the carbon): dried leaves, pine needles, straw, hay, wood shavings or chips

One part “green” (fresh living plants – they provide the nitrogen): grass clippings, vegetable and fruit leftovers, plants, coffee grounds
