Backyard composting doesn’t have to be just a mixture of leaves and grass. These browns and greens are the perfect source for carbon and nitrogen to make a “hot” pile, but there are other alternative sources for nitrogen, which will still create a hot pile. Most experienced composters have used and/or use a variety of manures to produce a rich, compost perfect for gardening. This class will examine the types of manures that should and should not be used in composting, as well as discuss the benefits of using worms in the composting process to produce vermi-compost.
