Fall is the Best Time to Make Compost: The New Green Cycler Plays a Complementary Role
Date:9/19/2013

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) September 19, 2013

While many people are finished gardening come fall, experienced gardeners take advantage of autumn to seize the moment and gather materials for composting. Garden experts know the raked leaves and spent garden clippings collected and composted this fall will create healthy garden soil for next year’s garden.

Why compost in fall? It’s simple. There is an abundance of ‘brown’ material: fall is the time of year when both nitrogen from cool season lawn mowing and carbon from fallen leaves are readily available – key ingredients in balanced compost. And since 3 times as much “brown” material needs to be added to “green” waste, such as kitchen scraps and grass clippings, fall is the best time to keep that waste out of the landfills and start a compost pile.

To speed up the process and get faster results, experienced composters shred green kitchen scraps into smaller pieces instead of just dumping them into the pile whole. Shredding organic waste can speed up the composting process by 1,000%, and, according to UC Berkeley, is “the key to successful composting.”

“The smaller, the better” is the rule for compost ingredients. Organic Gardening magazine agrees that shredding and chopping is the number one step to successful composting.

“Just like chewing starts the digestion process in humans, chopping kitchen scraps actually speeds the composting process,” explains Gail Loos, inventor of the Green Cycler, a new breed of kitchen appliance that easily shreds kitchen scraps.

“If you don’t shred your composting ingredients, especially in climates with short summers, you will re-visit your late-season watermelon rind and find it mostly intact months later. Throw a fully intact apple into the pile during the fall and you’ll still recognize its form come spring,” says Loos, who designed this new appliance with gardeners in mind.

To make the job of chopping and shredding easier, cleaner, and more fun for her children, Loos invented this new kitchen appliance to “pre-compost” kitchen scraps. It shreds everything from tomatoes to pumpkins, even avocado pits, into perfect, compost-ready pieces in mere seconds.

According to Jeff Lowenfels, author of Teeming with Microbes: The Organic Guide to the Food Soil Web, "Every yard should have a compost pile. Organic matter is too valuable to send to the landfill."

While most will have an abundance of ‘green’ waste throughout the year, fall is the time to put the balance back in compost to assure the healthiest compost for early spring gardening.

Good compost is really all that’s needed to have a healthy vegetable or flower garden and healthy shrubs and trees. In fact - creating healthy soil is the single most important garden 'to-do' to assure gardening success.

The Green Cycler is made in the USA by Ecotonix, a company that designs innovative organic waste reduction products for gardeners and environmentally conscious consumers. This sleek, counter top pre-composter (or food scrap shredder) dramatically speeds up the composting and decomposition process. Available in black, garden green, platinum, crystal and black, crystal and pink, and crystal and lime-green, the Green Cycler is the newest must-have kitchen appliance this season.
