Mixing compost piles on the ground

Subscribe to our Newsletter


I have a compost pile on the ground in my yard. Am I allowed to mix it during the shemitah year? If I mix it, I will be mixing soil.


Rabbi Moshe Bloom

It is allowed to mix compost heaps, even though you will be mixing some soil along with it. This is because the compost pile is not considered a place that can be used to plant in.
