Our composting area.

Working good at high temperature of 50.6 degree celcius.

John explaining the composting process. Carbon — for energy and heat. Comes from the dried brown leaves. Nitrogen — to grow and reproduce more organisms. Comes from the rotten green vegetables. Together with the right air and water balance, high temperature of above 50 degree celcius is maintained, and the materials are broken down to useful fertilisers!

While the children were helping out with the compost materials, the adults helped out with the kitchen, sanding of furniture, washing of pots and other harder tasks. We all get back together after that for a sharing session.
