Our first pile of compost is generating great heat, and rapidly shrinking (as it should). Given the shrinkage, we will need to add a lot more material to have enough to build a good base layer for the communal bed to follow.
Round 2 of hot composting will take place next week (date/time TBC) and with very successful compacting and shrinking of the existing pile, we need more ingredients. LOTS MORE.
So, do you have:
dried leaves (there are sure to be a ton after Sunday nights storm)
straw – maybe you have an old bale laying around?? or are willing to donate a bale?
If you have any of these ingredients please bring them ASAP and put them into the appropriate green or brown bays, ready for us to add to the pile next week.
Thanks in advance
