Meet Louise, one of Monty's Coolest Composters

Monty is made up of the most amazing, committed, coolest composters and we would be nowhere without their incredible support. As such, we thought that it would be super cool to feature a few of them so you can meet the community that's transforming composting.


First up is Louise, one of our first ever users who has been managing her compost with Monty for months.



As an avid gardener, Louise has an in-depth understanding of how compost can fit into any household and important tips to keep in mind. Throughout her journey with us, she has been able to share those tips, tricks and other feedback, helping make Monty easier to use for everyone who is to follow.


In order to better understand and sum up Louise's insights, we held an interview with the compost queen herself. Check out the transcript here between Louise and our Monty team member Phoebe.


Phoebe: Hi everyone! I’m Phoebe from Monty Compost Co and I’m here today with one of our most committed composters, Louise. Louise has been using Monty for months now and we’ve just upgraded her first Monty to our latest version. As such, we thought it would be a good time to learn a little more about her experiences, as well as her insights on compost, gardening and sustainability. So, let’s get started!


I think everyone would love to learn just a little more about you Louise, particularly around your composting journey. Say, how long have you been doing it for?


Louise: Oh years, around fifteen years.


Phoebe: And could you tell us more about your current compost for the listeners?


Louise: My compost system here consists of 4 bays, 3 tumbler’s, 6 chickens and a dog.


Phoebe: Now to the why - everyone composts for different reasons, whether it’s environmental, as a hobby or to get the nutrient-rich end product - what’s your reason?
