Some good information about composting was presented by Hudson Hill on April 27th!
Hudson is an extension educator for the University of Wyoming. During the workshop, he referred to the following UW Extension publication on backyard composting in Wyoming!
In a nutshell:
Start your compost pile with 25:1 brown to green organic matter.
You can add anything that was once alive but is now dead (although meat, bones, and human/dog/cat feces are not recommended).
Your compost pile should invite millions of microbes that, like all pets, need food, water, and exercise!
Food: organic matter, green and brown.
Water: your pile should be wet enough to feel icky but not stick to your hands.
Exercise: turn/stir your pile once per week!
Your pile should be warm and steamy. It should not stick to your hands or be soaking in water!
