One of the most time consuming jobs we have been at this past week has been literally ‘picking’ through soil and sand to remove any non-biodegradable waste items. The Photo above is of some of the soil and wood waste mix from The Sand’s workshop area, this is cleaned again before being added to the giant compost piles we are making, or if it’s more soil than wood, it becomes one of the new raised beds for planting.
In the photo above left one can see the ‘aerated’ base of the newest compost pile we are working on. Note the green leaves visible within signifying the layer of wet already inside. Photo above right, the piles gain height as they gain layers, the last batch of organic waste in from the Nomad Juice bar where fresh juices are made daily.
Some Organic waste is used in compost making like above, other, like leaves or coconut husk can be used as Mulch. (Below Left). However, before all of it goes elsewhere we always like to make sure that our Worms in our Wormary and our Black Fly Larvae are all fed also.. otherwise how would we get the nutrient rich Worm castings or such nice little fat grubs to feed the chickens?
