Trench composting is a more methodical variation of burying organic material.
For example, in one particular form of trench composting, garden rows or squares are rotated on a three-year plan. During the first year, plot A is used to bury organic material, plot C is planted, and plot B is left fallow. The second year, plot A is planted, plot B is used to bury compost, and plot C is left fallow. In the third year, plot A is left fallow, plot B is planted, and plot C is used to bury compost.
