Winter Care For your Compost

The long Montreal Winter is coming. For those of you who compost, this doesn't mean that you have to stop. Take a moment while there are leaves everywhere and gather a few bags. Lay down a 12 inch layer of leaves in your compost, then fill your compost as usual with food scraps, adding a thin layer of leaves for every 2-3 inches of food waste. The compost will freeze, but come Spring the microbes will burst to life and work through all the collected food waste.
