I’m interested in the decomposition dynamics of compost piles. In the coming weeks I’d like to do some preliminary studies on decay rates and nutrient processes of compost piles. Especially of interest to me are those compost heaps where their keepers have reasonable knowledge of inputs (even a reasonable description will qualify). Vermi-composting is especially welcome. Chicago region is preferred but we can work out something if you are farther afield. Contact me at lhenegha [at] gmail.
