Next it was time to fill it up with compost! All together it was about 150 yards of material (70'x30'x24"). 120 yards was composted green material from the local Forest Products place. The remainder was composted sludge from the City of Santa Rosa water treatment facility. I have never used "humanure" before, but it should be fine. It was cheap and I know that they do a great job composting and testing it. Overall the pH of the patch full of new compost was quite high (8.2), but I knew that the pH would fall as it decomposed.
