Can I add establsihed anaerobic compost to a new aerobic pile?


Basically, to make aerobic compost, you simply gather organic material put it into a bin or a heap in the garden, aerate it and then add it to your soil. However, in reality, aerobic composting is a little more involved than just that. The right quantity and types of materials you put into your compost heap makes a big difference to the quality and composting time of the resulting composted feedstock.
You need to think of your compost heap as a complete self-contained ecosystem full of aerobic microbes, and to survive, this ecosystem needs the right mix of ingredients such as "Oxygen" (from the air), "Water", "Warmth" and "Food" (from the composting materials), with the quality of the resulting compost depending on how well you control these four factors.
Decaying organic matter is a favorite haunt for many animals and insects with the redworm (also known as Red Wriggler Worms) or the night crawler worms being the most important. Both red-worms, night-crawlers and even garden worms can eat vast quantities of decaying vegetation at one end and due to their digestive system, excrete from the other end organic compounds that enrich the composted feedstock, while their burrowing actions help separate and aerate the compost at the same time.
But as well as redworms worms, naturally occurring active micro-organisms (mainly bacteria, aerobic microbes, and fungi) do most of the hard work of breaking down the large organic materials into a fine compost material. All you have to do is provide them with the right conditions to grow and multiply and they will do all the work for you.

Compost and Mulch Comparison?


Compost should be worked into the soil (eventually, at least) to make it more fertile. Mulch, by contrast, is spread atop the soil, both to protect the soil from the elements and to suppress weeds. While it is true that organic mulches will eventually decompose, thereby themselves becoming compost, their function as long as they serve as mulch is distinct from the function of compost.
