Set the pot on the stand. Put a layer of sand or soil on the bottom of the pot. Now add a layer of kitchen wastes over it. Then again spread some more soil on the top of the wastes and do this process a few times.
Now keep a bottle below the pot to collect liquid drops that fall from the pot. You can also connect a tube from the pot to the bottle so that the drops full properly into the bottle. This liquid is an excellent organic fertilizer.
