A good area for a your compost is somewhere dry and that drains easily. This will make sure that no excess moisture is introduced. This will speed up the food recycling process and may also encourage worms to get in the compost and start aiding in the breakdown efforts.
If using a closed container such as a bucket or garbage bin, they can be kept anywhere that is convenient. When using EM-1® and EM® Bokashi, the fermenting process produces very little odor and zero mess.
5. Aerate The Organic Material
Composting is a very low-maintenance task, but with that said it is important to regularly introduce new organic matter to the pile, as well as aerate the matter by mixing or turning it over. This can be done with a pitchfork for larger piles, or a compost aerator from something smaller.
Adding EM-1® increases the air flow in the pile and increases the aerobic microbe populations. This means more air will be available with less turning and less work. Add 10oz of activated EM-1® for every cubic foot of material (or 90 oz for a cubic yard). This can be applied to the pile each time you add new material.
