This is the Closed-Loop Community Compost Program! We divert food waste from our neighbors, keeping it out of the landfill and making compost to grow food with instead. We do it by bicycle which means burning no fossil fuels. Plus we harvest rainwater and grow our own sponges to wash the buckets!
In this video, I demonstrate how I make the plant food, or free organic home made fertiliser which I use on my garden here up on the hill to encourage the Soil Food Web to do the job of feeding my plants…my happy healthy vegetables, full of nutrition.
Important: check part 2 for important details (below this video, next post).
Vermiculture, or worm farming is easy when you know how. Making a worm farm in a bathtub is like having a fertiliser factory in your back yard. This is how you can you build a worm farm in a bathtub so it doesn´t get too hot?
How much, how little compost do you need to grow great vegetables?
This video is relevant to all gardeners, whether or not you dig/till the soil. There is no right / wrong amount of compost.
My explanations are from 40 years of an organic approach, using no synthetic or artificially manufactured fertilisers or feeds. All fertility is from compost, with best results from leaving it on the surface, as in no dig.
