Burying Our Compost

By BYCOOP admin - Posted on 19 December 2014

The kids bury the compost they collected. A couple hundred worms are added to the mix. We'll check on the progress after the Christmas break.

Scrap foods, especially meats and dairy products, are high in nitrogen and smell when decomposing which tends to attract pests and vermin. The school and soon to be municipal "organics composting" uses a different process and is designed to keep food scraps out of the landfill. Do not putv general food scraps in your backyard bin.

Can we put general food scraps in our backyard com poster? I notice that the schools are putting all food scraps in to an "organics" bin

We should have lots of good compost ready in a few weeks.
