by traveling from city to city I find different sources of the stuff I need, different ways to get to them and big differences on how its each city manage the inputs and outputs of resources. one of the outputs that we have been very concerned here on re:farm is the organic material that a city produce and it’s mostly wasted in big cities. more than wasted, is being mixed with paper, plastics or glass making the “eventualy” recycling process even more painfully. all the organic material produced by our kitchen, restaurants, markets and their super relatives are the raw material for your first step into farming.
you need to get good soil and cheap and this is very easy and simple: our organic waste is food for worms and their waste is food for our vegetables. with this in mind we are gonna setup this new mega composter at Andes and monitor the life of the worms and friends.
