Just keep adding a good mixture of the green and brown materials. The green materials provide nitrogen and moisture, while the brown materials provide air pockets, fibre and carbon.

Composting is a natural process and it will happen in time providing you have a good mix of materials.

Have a look in your compost bin. If it looks too wet, add some more brown materials. If it looks to green, add some green materials.
