Our compost pile is located at MAP's farm on Massachusetts Avenue. The compost pile this fall is big because we have put many greens in it, including leaves, plant bits, fruits, bark and wood. Our compost pile is really messy, but it doesn't smell much. We have seen centipedes, worms, spiders, potato bugs and other insects in the compost pile.
