Trench Composting

Photobucket

The easiest way I've found to utilize kitchen wastes and other organic materials is to trench compost. Dig a hole or trench eight to ten inches deep, fill it halfway with the waste products and backfill with soil. I use straw on top to hold moisture and that's it.

The technique works well in small garden areas, especially raised beds. It's something most everyone can do.

Organic waste materials do not grow anything in a land fill, unless that land fill is right in your backyard.
