Tony Callaghan's insight:

Burning garden waste - what a waste!

 

It can be challenging to compost mounds of leaf waste in cold temperatures - the decomposition slows to a near standstill.

 

The principles of hot composting and the design of the HOTBIN can be applied and scaled up. You can hot compost leaves and produce brilliant high humeric content compost ready for spring.

Tony Callaghan's insight:

All manure can be composted....

All manure from all sources has the potential to be dangerous

Use the right technique (hot composting, >40C) and tools (eg a HOTBIN) and it will be fine

More great information from Fran Jurga!

Mary Horsemoms's curator insight, May 2, 2013 12:16 AM

Fran wrote a great article on using horse poop as fertilizer.

 

It's natural and it's recyclable but it can also be very unhealthy, even dangerous if you don't wash and clean any vegetables or fruits that are being grown in this fertilizer.

 

Certianly not as dangerous as Monsantos GMO... But still important to pay close attention.

 

Frans article goes into quite some detail on a test they did. Facsinating and surprising.

 

So if you're like me and add this to your garden, you really need to have a look at her article.

James Lloyd's curator insight, November 11, 2013 1:43 PM

... the only benefit is the bin manufacturer and distributer....  a REAL success is people using them, rather than finding a home for a couple of hundred tonnes of (hopefully) recycled plastic.
