Cold weather composting

Asked March 30, 2020, 5:05 PM EDT

Is it possible to build a pallet compost bin system that works in this climate? We are from Texas and could have open bins. What works here? We are at 7200ft.

CSU has a really helpful fact sheet on composting that I’ve sent the link to: https://extension.colostate.edu/topic-areas/yard-garden/composting-yard-waste-7-212/ Additionally, I found an interesting article about composting at altitude from an instructor at Colorado Mountain College: https://www.vaildaily.com/opinion/columns/high-altitude-gardening-column-start-a-compost-pile/ Please reach out if you have further questions,
