Composting and Worm Systems

The ground composting is done through classic layering principles and regular turning. Garden waste and manure are added.

The bin at the Skinner City Farm site has four walls of plywood/ plastic and a grated bottom. It is a top-fed, continuous flow system. They are equipped with hand-powered winches that run a cutting blade on the bottom of the pile. The goal is to raise worms while at the same time harvesting worm castings as a source of fertilizer.
