Another demonstration of 1 cubic meter of fast compost (30 days then ready for application)
I am encouraging these to be built everywhere as free-standing, readily available soil nutrition. The farmers are being taught to make them, and the take-up for the training is most frequently the women, who make them fast – 2 hours tops.
This is a ‘direct-action, lightening-strike’ intervention that has captured the imagination … compost can do that!
In some of the villages and farming communities that I am working with, we have constructed 6, three ‘tank’ , deep compost-pits from block work. Each chamber will hold upto 1,000L of finished compost – but compost that is a year in the making and maturing.
With the two types of compost generation we will be able to sustain huge annual land coverage and soil-building.
Soil-regeneration by compost = Greater fertility, Higher yields, Decreased plant disease, Enhanced water-retention, Erosion eradication and Pollution abrogation … Where’s the down-side?
