Reactivating a (large) cold compost pile with something liquid?
New here, so I hope this is an acceptable question for this forum :)
We find ourselves with a rather large compost pile at our community garden.....far too big to be managed with a couple of folks with forks. But the pile has gone cold, I think because of too much carbon and not enough nitrogen over the winter, and we're looking for ways to charge it back up again...WITHOUT the ability to mix in juicy solids like grass clippings or manure.
I'm wondering if anybody has every kick-started a cold compost pile with something liquid? Is there a high-nitrogen liquid that we could saturate the pile with, turn it as best we can, and it will start to "cook" again? Any ideas on that?
Thanks in advance for any idea, no matter how "out there" they are :)
