Neighborliness

The other thing to recall about Compost Piles is their temporal nature. It's their location that retains a certain permanence.  They are not roaming, or in anyway nomadic, they don't wander around,  They do not benefit from rotation, in the way that a Tomato does. And too, "The Compost Pile" as a neighborhood has a  long tradition of service to a wider communities.

 It's like a graveyard if your like, and here I don't mean one of those flat things out in sunshine, grass cut to within an inch of its life and the odd bit of colorful plastic strewn around.  I mean something with character, a certain ambience, a place to find solace, a neighborly atmosphere and good shade on a hot day.
