DFS: Composting Simplified

July 14, 2012 @ 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM


In this class you will learn the basics of composting—starting with carbon and nitrogen materials ID. Then we will talk about bins, and building a compost pile, plus needs, sites and maintenance. If you just wet layer carbon and nitrogen ingredients, the microbes will Break It Down. Then we will talk about worm composting basics, before diving into carcass composting. If it comes from nature—it can return to nature. Carcass composting is a DNR recommended disposal method when done properly, so no animals dig at the carcass. Honest- Roger has composted a 4 full grown cows and a shire work horse—with no smell. This is a great way to recycle the left-overs from butchering.
