A natural process that converts organic, biodegradable material into a dark, rich soil amendment with beneficial microorganisms and nutrients that can contribute to the health of your soil.
Utilizing and depending on naturally fluctuating temperatures (ranging between 80 - 160 degrees), this process cooks and breaks down organic materials. Over a span of 4 to 5 months, diverse habitats emerge, attracting a range of decomposers, including worms, which aid in the composting of the material.
The use of worms (red wigglers, African & European nightcrawlers) to compost organic material.
The temperatures are achieved naturally from the microbial activity. This also contributes to breaking down complex organic compounds and some organic contaminants.
Another benefit of the heat produced by the microbial activity is an environment that can effectively kill harmful pathogens, including certain bacteria, viruses, and parasites. At the same time healthy, beneficial bacteria, fungi and microorganisms are developing.
Moving into the moderate temperatures of the mesophilic phase the system is about halfway through the process.
This process further contributes to the breakdown of organic material into simpler compounds.
The mesophilic phase is facilitated by a diverse range of microorganisms. These microbes participate in the breakdown of complex organic matter, helping to reduce the concentrations of harmful substances
Small amount of heat being released.
