    David, this is not word for word. I took your general statements and
    condensed some into sentences that still express what you are saying. I
    hope this is good enough for your translations. 🙂

    Now I just wanted to show you how a compost area might look like. We have
    some leaf mulch here, now i spent much of the morning separating 3
    different kinds of materials. There was a big pile ontop of that old
    compost pile there, we have a lot of these old branches, leaf mulch. What
    I’ve also done is shredded bigger branches and this pile here is green
    stuff, plenty of flies with vegetable, it will be mixed with brown stuff.
    Smaller branches, older compost pile here, lovely black stuff here with
    little branches which is important because too much carbon content in soil
    will rob nitrogen from soil. Softer branches are okay, bigger branches are
    not okay. Before we talk about how we make the compost heap, we talk about
    this heap I made two months ago. I made a video on it. We see black stuff
    in it, its half decomposed, twigs need to be broken, there is worms, worms
    are great. The compost has cooled down and some nasturtium flowers growing
    here.

    How to make it: use brown carbon materials bark, mulch, paper, cardboard
    leaves twigs, then comes water, fungi and bacteria make use of it. Then
    branches are the brown and also allow air pockets to come into compost. Air
    is important for fungi to break down the heap, green material we use
    vegetable peelings, cow manures, then add soil for worms so worms can have
    it to break down compost material. Eventually we go back to browns, water,
    then greens, every now and then we use an inoculant, which is fungi found
    in the forest. Worm castings or adding sweet compost is very good for and
    innoculum. Another thing is, different materials in the garden, weeds, food
    scraps, leaves, branches, if you can make sure you have a certain amount of
    carbon and nitrogen (25:1) if you have these quantities in the right
    amount, the decomposition process will do very well. Easiest way to think
    of it is a sandwich, brown on the outside and thin layer of green inside.
    Also recommend, with higher compost, make levels of brown and green, add
    soil in-between, up to a meter or 2 meters, turn it once a day. It will
    heat up a lot and adding water will cool it down. I was using a thermostat
    to make sure its not above 60C, but u can leave it there for a day and if
    its hot to the touch you should turn it and water it, if its not hot then
    its okay. You can use this compost for compost tea if you care for it
    enough. Bring in microbes from a wormery or an old compost heap that smells
    sweet to ensure bacteria. Throw in fungi to innoculate every now and then.
    Quickly here, this is hyphen, (fungi decomposing this compost). Hope that
    answered a lot of question in regards to making your own compost, This is
    different from a wormery that’s a low, 30cm high heap, we feed it by adding
    nitrogen and carbon materials and worms as well. Now if you have any
    questions drop a comment on Youtube, Facebook or private message me, thanks
    for watching.

    Hi there! I am getting as much info on compost for starting my own in my
    tiny garden. But what I don’t understand is: Can I start the pile at any
    point of the month? And being the pile out in the open, if it rained a lot,
    wouldn’t it get too wet? Doesn’t it need coverage? btw wonderful videos!
    Thanks, Izzy

    Thanks for your comment again David. It really didn’t seem right to me from
    the beginning. I started a new garden and compostpile this year. The new
    pile wasn’t heating up as I expected it would do, so that’s why I started
    some research on the topic. But I’ll definetly stick to the same conclusion
    to keep my pile and garden the natural way instead of the MacDonalds-way 🙂
    Besides… who wants to spill beer anyway?? :p
