That's great - I should have plenty of all of that. I also have plenty of rotting tree stumps and fallen trees on the property that are decomposed to almost the state of mulch. It seems like any of that would work.

We are developing a completely off the grid property and are planning on using composting toilets. I understand peat is the common starter/activator for these toilets. My question is about sourcing the peat. The southern half of our property (20 acres) is the northern tip of a 200+ acre Tamarac swamp. I'm thinking I have a 100 lifetimes supply of peat literally in my back yard. But I'm not sure if that's usable, if I have to do anything special to it to use it in the toilet, or what my options are. I'm hoping the answer is "just dig up a shovel full and throw it in". Any thoughts/suggestions?
