    Hello ! What about vermicomposting (with worms) ? as we’ve seen that with the bioturbation, it is even quicker, and I’ve read that for smaller spaces, like urban composting, on balconies or the like, it’s an even better solution as it limits the smells and provides compost more quickly. Will it be covered later on on the course ? This is interesting stuffs !

    Great lesson! wow, I am especially interested in this list of micronutrients of weeds, I mean “Dynamic Acumulators”. Example- dandelion and lambs quarters have lots of different nutrients that I didn’t know about- and they are prolific in my yard and garden, so I REALLY need to get them in my compost. Right now I am hauling them to the local compost site because they have already gone to seed, but clearly that loop needs to be closed. I wonder if I could make a hot compost once a year for this seed issue, OR make sure I get them before they go to seed. Thanks for that info!

    A great lesson Bret! I’ll probably be need to listen to it a few more times as so much interesting information. Thanks for the additional resources, they will be helpful.

    the ratios of carbon to nitrogen was new to me. As much as I gardened growing up, the compost was just a pile of organic stuff thrown together. No real attention given to content and in suburbia, I just bought compost from home depot! Now I am excited to start a real compost from scratch!
