let's compost together
Nature does have manure and she does have roots as well as blossoms, and you can’t hate the manure and blame the roots for not being blossoms.
The compost pile should be placed directly on the ground to facilitate my entrance and other beneficial organisms from the soil.
A shady spot will keep the bins from dying out so rapidly in the hot summer months.
Locate near a water source, as water will be needed when building the pile, and also from time to time when turning the pile.
To have a good compost pile, you need those basic ingredients:
Organic matter--> household waste, kitchen waste and yard waste.
Microorganisms and animals--> already in the soil.
Water--> the goal is to try to achieve about 50% moisture content which is necessary for the development of the microorganisms.
Air--> good air circulation is the basic requirement for a successful aerobic compost pile.
Turning--> this process assures that oxygen is available to keep the pile aerobic.
First layer should be composed of some fairly absorbent materials to catch any excess liquid (crushed leaves and/or sawdust)
After the dry materials, add a layer of green materials (green grass clippings, kitchen waste, ...) avoid the big pieces of material which will be more difficult for the degradation.
The last layer should be composed of some leaves and dry grass to help inhibit any odours.
