• Keith gives a boost to composting

    Peace Corps volunteer Keith, on the right, is keen on composting. Here is a heap he made at the farm with volunteer Rachel, and farm workers Patrick and Sedrak.  It consists of layers of organic material like corn cobs, husks, chicken manure, grass slashings, bean husks, ash, dirt, and the ever so smelly slurry from the pigs.  We hope in months to come it will be a rich organic fertilizer which they can apply to the crops or trees.  His idea is to place these strategically throughout the farm to enrich the soil over the long term.
