Harvesting Compost


August 2, 2021

Sara of the Extension office suggested I contact you with my concern/request.

I am currently a member of the Saw Mill Community Land Trust community garden.  When the garden began we had a Master Composter who started a system.  He has not been here for two years.  He set up two rather large bins.   At present, one of the bins is about 1/4 to 1/3 full which contains what I believe compost which is ready to harvest.  The other bin is quite full and filled with accumulated scraps and dry matter over the past couple of years.

My request is for help in harvesting the ready compost and I really don’t know what to do with the rest.  I would appreciate hearing from you.


Answer from JV: Perhaps I could meet you at the site, then evaluate the situation. Send me some dates, times and address for your garden, then we’ll work it out.
