TED Talk: “Everything You Know About Composting is Wrong”

Entertaining and interesting information on composting, it’s not quite “Everything You Know About Composting is Wrong” but he raises some good points about saving as much “leaf mold” (fallen tree leaf) to make into essentially needed rich compost and save your kitchen waste/scraps and waste paper for the Wormary (worm bin) where the worms can actually break it down into a useable form. Compost piles often struggle to break these “ingredience” down but worms enrich them into what’s known as “worm casts”, an excellent source of Nitrogen and Phosphorus as well as many other things.
