Composting Do's and Don'ts
Here are some of the Do's and Don'ts to help you quickly and efficiently
Stir the pile frequently, to maximize air penetration.
Keep the pile moist.
Chip or shred larger branches and plant stalks. The more surface area bacteria
has to work, the quicker the decomposition.
Use garden, yard, and kitchen plant wastes.
Keep materials loose, to allow air circulation
Use a variety of organic materials
Put worms in an open compost pile, but not a compost barrel, bin or tumbler.
Do not put animal remains, meat, or fats in the pile. They attract unwanted
Do not put grass clippings too thickly, they smell as they decay.
Do not put diseased plants of any kind, into the compost pile. Plant disease
over-winters in a pile, and re-infests your garden next year.

Do not use materials that have been treated with any kind of
chemicals(insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, etc.).
