RSMAS Community Garden update

I drilled some holes in the composter so there would be some air flowing in and out. If you want to start adding material to it, please follow the list below.
I also wrote to Home Depot to ask for a donation of some bags of soil. We estimated that we will need about 50 to start. If you would like to donate some bags of soil, please email me at or Teddy at

Green / wet materials
  • Fruit and veggie scraps
  • Egg shells
  • Tea bags, tea leaves
  • Fresh green grass clippings and plant trimmings grown without pesticides or weed killers
  • Plate scrapings (excluding meat and bones)
Brown / dry materials
  • Dry leaves, dried grass clippings
  • Wood shavings or sawdust
  • Nuts and shells
  • Coffee grounds and filters
  • Pinecones, pine needles
  • Shredded egg cartons (the paper kind)
  • Shredded newspaper and tissue paper
  • Twigs
  • Hay
  • Peanut shells
  • Cold wood ashes
  • Dryer lint
  • Shredded cereal boxes and other paperboard items
