hello. indeed i have thought about making small guerilla compost piles onsite, probably the year before.
right now i am collecting lots of free compost from under the oak trees near my site. there is a spot where the ground under the oak patch is shaped like a little swimming pool. all the leaves accumulate there. i push away the top layer of new leaves, and underneath there is 2 feet of nice leaf compost. i fill up a 40 L shopping bag and walk it to the patch like 4 meters away.
i will be doing this hauling of compost for a few weeks. i work on my plots every afternoon. so i have enough time to haul thousands of gallons of free native ammendments into my variouse spots.
