Fill bucket: 1/3 full of chopped-up dry tree leaves (carbohydrates) plus add water to wet these leaves
2/3 full of chopped-up green leaves (protein) for a carbon protein ratio around 30/1
1 scoop of good topsoil and/or old compost for inoculation of soil organism
Hand full of kitchen waste: bananas, egg shells, potato peeling for added diversity
This compost, to be completely broken down, needs more time. However, it is still usable when mixed with other soils.
