Hundreds of composters are using Monty Monitor for better, faster and cleaner composting!

Self Sufficient Me

I think Monty and the app are great tools for beginner gardeners or composters to help them learn more about composting and improve their skills to make wonderful black gold for their garden.

Setting up my monty literally took SECONDS. It just sits in your compost and does the guesswork for you.

If you’ve ever been confused by what makes a healthy compost, and what to do to amend your heap for an optimal environment, this monitor will be your best friend!

Sarah's Compost Bays

Monty has taken all of their science-y knowledge, and distilled it into an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand system: a UFO-like stick that lives in your compost with Bluetooth connection to an app that monitors your compost, and offers helpful tips to improve it! I’ve been enjoying using the system for a while now.

What the Monty Composters are saying

Alannah, QLD

Alannah's New Garden

It’s been 22 days in my new 240L compost bin which I put in a start block, my half pile of compost on the ground, dry leaves, kitchen scraps and fresh lawn clippings! It’s already come so far and looking so healthy.. a week ago I added some worm casting just a handful, some more greens and browns. My pile has shrunk so I know it’s working.

Monty tracks and analyses data from my worm farm or compost and sends it to my phone! I'm also really keen to restart a compost heap with this bad boy - I always struggle to know where I've gone wrong with compost heaps, so I'm excited to actually have an understanding of my composts health.

From the outside my heap seemed to be doing its thing. But thankfully the data was able to tell another story. With a little research the basic learning was: - Way too much brown content!

After a few days of checking and adjusting and turning, we finally got our first wisps of steam coming off the hot compost pile!

Monty tracked my temperature in the early 20s, which was a full 10 degrees warmer than the ambient temperature!

I’ll keep turning and learning about this, but I’m having fun with my graphs on the Monty app!

Jess, NSW

Monty is a device that gives you real time feedback on your phone so you can monitor and optimize your compost. It measures the temperature, moisture content, humidity and the gases in your compost. It is then calculated and custom instructions are then generated in the app to help you look after the health of your compost.

Compost monitors can make composting easier to understand. A device like Monty, which has just been released in the states, can help make it less confusing.

HCCS, SA

School Garden

We have used Monty as a regular part of our Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Classes. Students learn how to build and maintain a compost heap and Monty helps students keep track of what is added to the heap as well as how it is progressing and what may need to be done to tweak it to create great compost. The visual interface is easy for students to use, on the class tablet, that links via Bluetooth to the monitor. They can also keep track of how the compost heap has performed over the year which has the potential to link in with their classroom learning in the future. Monty aligns well with our focus on nature education and the integration of digital technologies in nature.
