Organic materials have been composted since there was organic matter to compost. It is nothing new. However, it still can be challenging to compost properly. That is, to produce something that is safe and useful as a soil amendment. This is what we were trying to achieve when we designed the Actium Compost Drums. They can accomplish this relatively easily. with a minimum amount of labour.
We’re pleased to have Dr. Meaghan Wilton provide us with composting articles relating some her experiences and expertise with composting. Meaghan has operated an Actium Batch Compost Drum in the remote northern community of Fort Albany Ontario for over 5 years. Because of their cold climate, this is a particularly challenging task from which they have enjoyed a great level of success.
