Earthmaker’s patented three-stage process uses traditional three-bin composting but stacked vertically so gravity does the hard work!
Earthmaker’s continuous cycle process keeps new material away from older material. Food and garden waste can be added at any time. Mature mulch or compost can be removed when convenient. (Attempting to aerate material in a single bin units means mixing new waste with old which slows down the process).
The Earthmaker push-pull-tool makes it easy to mix and move material through the process without straining your back with heavy lifting and turning.
How it works:
Top Chamber – mixing Composting begins with microbial action. Fungi and bacteria make heat (that’s why grass cuttings get hot) and also like heat. Radiant energy from the sun (even when it’s cloudy) is helpful, especially in winter.
Middle Chamber – digesting‘Biological mulching’ occurs during the next phase. The internal climate is cooler and composting continues with invertebrates assisting micro-organisms to further break down larger particles of your valuable food and garden waste. Earthworms may hatch from eggs in the grass cuttings and leaves etc.
Lower Chamber – maturing and storingAs the material reaches the ground excess water drains away and the process begins converting the mulch into compost. If you leave it long enough it will become sweet smelling and ‘friable’, but it can be added to your garden at any stage between mulch and compost.
