Title: Re: [cg] Re: Compost bins
Hi Steve,
You are so right about climate and soil types to drive compost techniques! The pit method is awesome and I think I’ll try it here (we maybe should have a winter and a summer method as the season’s humidity changes quite a lot), my dad lives in Sydney on sandy soil and he has composted for years using the trench method – digging a trench and filling it with a mixture of compost ingredients, moving along as he goes. When broken down this becomes his next vegetable bed.

Hi Everyone,
It would be a good idea for builders of compost bins to take climate into account.
