Here is an example of a new “tropical composting bed method” that I am trying to invent.  Will it work?  For sure…well with enough time, all composting works if you add a big range of materials.  Here are the zero-waste salvage materials found on the farm, and donated by Redwater Cafe.

Border walls: basalt growing blocks salvaged from a greenhouse

Base layer:  ocean fish scrap

Second layer:  green veg waste and egg shells

Third Layer:  fairly well broken down Ironwood needles

Fourth layer:  coral sand

Fifth layer: a dusting of soil from the farm

more layers to follow…

to be continued…
