The Science and Art of Composting

Since our formation over the 3 years ago, UW Campus Compost has established the view that composting is both a science and an art -- and messy ones at that. The science is biochemistry and ecology; it's the interaction of external factors and ratios of organic matter; it's the techniques used. The art view considers composting a labour of love -- and one that should be shared with others.
