Our April meeting was at Paul’s home and along with the usual swapping of produce, chatting and catching up, we got down and dirty doing some bio-dynamic composting.
There are lots of sites out there that go into detail about it so we won’t, but here is what we got up to and why we did what we did. In short, bio-dynamic composting is the art of creating a compost heap with all the correct nutrients (macro, micro and mineral) to allow it to decompose without turning or further external inputs. The creation of this kind of heap requires you to have all the materials available in one go. It is not the kind of thing you can build gradually and it takes around 6 months to compost enough to then use.
