Recycle & Compost
Composting turns organic material into soil conditioner. Thermal composting method reduces the time required by using an optimal ratio of Carbon and Nitrogen. The actions of bacteria and fungi raises the temperature of the compost pile killing pathogens and weed seeds. The resulting compost has a texture between coffee grinds and soil with a fresh scent.
HomelandGreen encourages farmers and environmental groups to make compost on site. We host free hands-on compost workshops periodically.
Instead of disposing their organic residue, local food factory operators now deliver their organic residue/waste to our partner farms. HomelandGreen volunteers then turn this food waste into soil conditioner. This cooperation is encouraging in many ways. There is no added to cost to the food factory operators. At the same time, it relieves the demand of garbage dump sites as 40% of garbage is organic waste. The shift in the commercial sector towards a greener approach is particularly welcoming.
Quality compost makes soil more airy allowing spaces between soil particles. It possesses negative charges attracting positively charged chemical compounds like nitrogen, calcium, etc. preventing leaching during heavy downpour.
