Home Forums General Discussion Off-grid living on the cheap! Re: Off-grid living on the cheap!


Someone on another thread specifically asked about new installations of composters in BC which is why I asked the health inspector. Grandfathering may be an option where an existing dwelling is located. I’m familiar with NY weather having lived there for about 25 years. This place gets colder for longer being at latitude 54 not 44.

For occasional week-end use it might work but for full time use by a family some heat is needed to keep the bacterial activity going during prolonged cold weather. Other wise you end up with a thawing dung heap come spring. Why invite even more flies during fly season?
