composting at espai quiro

the idea is to start a group of urban composting, you know, we need to start making food for the vegetables :p

to start we’ll try 2 diferrent systems: a variation of berkley’s hotcomposting method and my friends  Hermetia illucens 

for the hermetia illucens we will build composters from some old trash cans the the city council kindly gave to us. we’ll collect the leachate on a 1,5L pet bottle.

here some photos of the firsts gatherings.
