I used EM-1 to add even more rich microbes to the heathy new compost and replace any that may have gotten burned out when the fish composting really heated things up. The fish composting was a success! (yeah! Thank you to Redwater Cafe and their continued donation of green waste and fish bits, Merriman’s for cardboard, and Starbucks for the donation of coffee grounds to help me build the soil!) The compost is a bit chunky due to my using a lot of sticks, but after a little bit of sifting out large pieces, the new compost was ready to be added to one of the beds. This will give a Spring makeover to a well used bed.
Bringing a bit style to my deliveries are the baskets the I use. I have tried my best to make a sustainable, stylish solution to delivering to the chefs of Hawaii. They have loved the vintage style that both the car and the baskets add to their day. I have even been asked to leave my ol’ little car out in front of Merriman’s restaurant at their 25th anniversary party. Both “Pixie”the car and the delivery basket brimming with squash are featured on this month’s special 4-course squash menu at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel.
Both examples prove that an inexpensive, stylish, zero-waste solution comes in ahead of mainstream produce marketing. Rethink your marketing and delivery system and you may win by creating a big cost savings for your farm, and a meaningful connection with your customers. Do it your own way…guerilla style.
