VIDEO: How to Turn a Compost Pile

VIDEO: How to Turn a Compost Pile

The key to a productive compost pile is oxygen.  Turning the compost pile will mix the materials and allow oxygen into the pile, which is essential to the decomposition process.

The video demonstrates how to turn a compost pile.  The idea is simple, using a garden fork or compost aerator, mix the materials in the compost pile.  I have heard it mentioned that you should try to aerate and turn the pile once a week to maintain hot compost, which will result in finished compost more quickly.
