    Good job in bringing awareness to composting. Just remember you can directly bury food scraps including fish waste about 12 to 18 inches beneath the top soil of your garden. Worms are invasive creatures and will turn it into vermicompost for you.

    Good info.. I find it pretty easy to compost once you are in the mindset that a lot of the fruit and vegetables you discard could easily be added to a compost box.

    I created my compost bin from discarded 3×3 pallets. They worked out pretty well.

    If anyone is interested, I added the steps and pictures of the process.

    Happy Composting!

    my father is coming over this weekend to help my compost and I am pretty excited to get it started. I will have to print all your tips out to keep them handy, or even more eco friendly put them on evernote on my phone!

    I’ll have to show this to my brother in law. Right now he just throws his compost behind his shed, then the kids get into it and it’s..yuck…
