Petting Zoo manure for Nursery.

EcopalAugust 2, 2012

Hey Everybody

There is a video on YouTube called how to compost manure in thirty days. It basically shows you how to speed up the composition of fresh manure using only water and black plastic. I would like to know if this could actually work. The reason is because Urban Paradise is starting a nursery at Amelia Earhart Park and because there is a petting zoo at the park I suggested using the cow, goat, pig, chicken and horse manure as a source of fertilizer for our plants. It would be great if this could be ready for our garden in only thirty days but I could really use someone who has more experience in this area.

P.S. When they deliver the manure to us its mixed with bedding and all the different animal manures mixed together. Is that a problem? Also is pig manure O.K.
