Compost Time!

Next Saturday (6/29) the Ryan Street Community Garden will be hosting a composting workshop by Matt Manders of Superior Skills, so we decided we better spruce up our system a bit in preparation. At RSCG we use the cold composting method, which means our piles are built slowly over time as the materials are available. This method of composting takes longer to decompose, requires less maintenance, and happens at temps under 140° F. Matt will be demonstrating both hot and cold composting methods during the workshop.

Doing our annual turn of the cold compost bins.
Nothing slashes down green matter for composting better than a good old fashion scythe. Viki is showing us how to keep that blade nice and sharp.
