Easy Low Cost Composting with Free Coffee Grounds and Wood Chips Alberta Urban Garden

Great video, but I have a few concerns: He mentions not adding meat to the compost pile… just add it.

Meat and dairy products are absolutely compostable, and although he mentions needing a hot pile to do so, interesting enough those very items heavily contribute to creating heat within a compost pile!

As long as you have at least double the amount of brown materials as you do food scraps/meat/dairy products, you’ll be fine.

This dude has plenty of energy and a large pile able to handle any meat he may have.

Also- I’ve never seen someone add so much dirt to a compost pile… while there’s nothing wrong with adding dirt, I don’t see quite enough brown materials here.

Instead of all the dirt, his pile would benefit even more from covering the entire pile with brown materials.
