The short and simple of backyard composting
How we compost at the Vancouver Compost Demonstration Garden
Sharon Slack, head gardener at our Demo Garden, explains briefly what you need to do to make excellent compost at home. Using just your fruit and veggie scraps, some leaves and some garden waste, you can have great finished compost in 5-8 months. This cold composting method lets you use whatever organic waste you have on hand.
Sharon demonstrates how to use a compost aerator and what to do if a rat shows its face.
And of course if you have more questions, call our Compost Hotline at 604-736-2250.
