Step 4: Other ways of speeding the process up

There are yet other ways of speeding the decomposition process up such as:

-Adding old compost will add more of the micro-organisms that are needed
-Adding fertilizers, manures, or other things rich in nitrogen
-Adding worms
-Good aeration
-Adding some saprophytic fungi

I was always told to pee in the compost as this will speed things up. Not sure why.

I see how that could help. I think urine is high in nitrogen containing chemicals like which tend to "warm up" a compost pile by speedily decomposing which raises the pile's temperature and promotes decomposition.
