New Zealand Box Style Three-Bin System
Bernalillo County Extension Master Composters
Additional comments about New Zealand Box Style Three-Bin System:
- Maintain a moisture level in the organic materials that it is similar to the moisture content of freshly brewed coffee grounds, saturated but not dripping.
- If the bin is not in the shade, it may be covered with two layers of shade fabric or cardboard.
Please read our brochure Composting in the Desert.
