Siting the Green Johanna compost bin
The Green Johanna compost bin should be placed on a flat surface, preferably soil or grass, allowing worms and other microorganisms access to the bin’s contents, whilst ensuring any liquid produced during the composting process can drain freely from the Green Johanna's base. A partial or fully shaded site is best, ideally not too far away from the house to allow easy access in winter. If there is a known rodent problem in the area, we recommend siting the Johanna composter away from fence lines where possible.
What to put in the Green Johanna compost bin
The Green Johanna composts raw and cooked food waste together with garden waste (grass clippings and garden prunings), plus brown cardboard and plain, non shiny paper. We do not recommend adding bones to your Green Johanna as these will not be broken down and will need to be removed from the finished compost at a later date.
When setting up the Green Johanna, start by making a 10-20cm base layer of coarse garden material (twigs and woody prunings). This will help activate the compost and keep the air in the composter flowing. Thereafter, add two parts of garden waste to one part kitchen waste (please see the Johanna's accompanying user guide for full details).
