Has any one ever done deep composting in your garden? What I mean by this is the ideal we have is to dig a hole 18 to 24 inches deep put In the stuff we want to compost and cover with dirt.We think this will improve the nutrients in the soil as well as bring the minerals from deeper down up to the surface and also be a place to add the new worms into the garden bed.

I will be trying to build above ground with subsoil banks creating a trough and then filling with biomass, woody fibrous things and canas (hollow for air release over time), with soil layered with straw and possible manure then a thinnish compost cover in order to allow for good water filtration from the beginning. But I feel very uncertain. Thoughts?
