This garden is serious about diverting organic matter produced in the community away from the garbage and landfills and into our bins to create compost. But how does that measure in weight and volume? Today we spent a few hours with our 3-bin composting system in the back of the garden with a tape measure and calculated some of the results. Our composting bin is the same that many gardens construct, made of recycled wood pallets, which create 3 open spaces for compost in different stages measuring approximately 4 foot square.
