How This Homestead Blogger Uses Copper For Composting 

According to Amy Mings of Maison de Mings, composting with copper is also part of her family's goal of making their homestead more self sufficient.

Here is what she has to say about how she incorporates copper as part of the composting process for organic waste from her farm animals, as well as composting food scraps in her kitchen:

Since starting our hobby farm, we have been working towards making our homestead more self sufficient. We have natural compost readily available from our farm animals, but we loved the idea of recycling food and other organic waste into compost as well.

As part of my graduate assistantship, I've been doing a lot of research on food waste, waste management, and organic farming. I love how compost provides a range of environmental benefits, including improving soil health, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, recycling nutrients, and mitigating the impacting of droughts. 

After I received this beautiful copper compost canister from Sertodo Copper,I knew it was time to build our outdoor compost bin!

  • Composting is a natural process of decomposition of organic materials by microorganisms and invertebrates.

Outdoor Copper Composting

Turning our yard debris and kitchen waste into compost will help us reduce our carbon footprint by developing our own nutrient-rich soil amendments for our garden and flower beds. Compost also helps to reduce the amount of garbage that goes into landfills.

We put together a DIY style compost bin made from wood pallets we already had on hand. I recommend checking with your local tractor supply stores to find free pallets available in your area. Ours is currently a simple three sided design, but we may add a front gate as time goes on.

The process of composting is really simple! Once we dump scraps and coffee grounds from our copper compost canister into our bin, we will mix the material, add water, and as the materials heat up they will begin to breakdown into rich soil. 

As you can see, I had a special helper while assembling the compost area!

Did you know that pig manure is an excellent fertilizer containing nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and other nutrients? It also adds organic matter to the soil which may improve soil structure, aeration, soil moisture-holding capacity, and water infiltration!
