I take the organic approach. I got some old skids, stood them up to form a 3 sided box, and held them together with wire. The 4th side is only held with 1 piece of wire so it can be easily removed. I put about 12 inches of leaves (I use a shredder) then about 4 inches of manure. I get the manure from a local stable. Continue this layering till the "box"is full. In 3 or 4 weeks remove the side held with 1 piece of wire and turn the stuff into another "box". I have 4 "boxes" wired together and just make an assembly line out of it. In a couple of months you have some good stuff for the garden. Sorry this note is so long, I get carried away..
