Do you want to start composting but you are worried about the smell?
Are you worried about the time it will take until your compost is ready?
After experimenting with different types of composting, we can now teach you how to make your own compost in 7-15 days, without any smell and only with your home waste!
Now is the best season to start in the Middle East.
General benefits of composting:
– Replaces the need for fertilizers
– Replaces the need for insect repellents / insecticides
– Avoid diseases and pests, as plants are stronger and healthier
– Nutrients are more available for the plant and which accelerates the growth of your plants
– Adding a range of bio-diverse microorganisms to the soil
Acid fermented compost is the latest technology in composting and it is better, because:
– It’s faster (7-15 days in the weather of Qatar/Middle East)
– Easier to be made – zero maintenance. Once you put it there, you leave it
Location: Hadiqaa garden, Abu Hamour
