If you’ve got lots of bulk organic matter in your garden, then hot composting is for you. It’s a great way to process large amounts of material to cycle it back into your landscape to improve soil health and ultimately, grow more food. You can watch our latest covid-19 Crisis Gardening video to see how we do it in our own garden here.
Additional hot composting resources we’ve created over time include:
- This detailed blog on hot composting for the home scale.
- Watch this other little video I did with the City of Hobart on their industrial composting facility – so good!
- And incase you haven’t seen it yet, you can download this free compost booklet we wrote for City oh Hobart with ALL KINDS OF COMPOSTING METHODS.
- And of course, you can read last week’s blog on food waste composting here.
In conclusion, compost (in its many shapes and forms) is an essential part of living a good life. Whether you’re doing it in your backyard, community space or your local Council’s facilitating it for/with you – get into it. There’s nothing more satisfying than turning all that comfrey and spoiled straw you can see below into dark brown nutritious compost for our garden!
