"How do I decide what to put in my compost bin?" "My compost stinks! What do I do?" "I want my pile to get hot. How big do I make it?"

This 16-minute video teaches the science behind the solutions. Using a quiz show format to present common questions, it shows home composters learning how to provide the right conditions for composting without problems. The information is presented in an informal, entertaining way to make learning about composting fun!
