compost time!

After we got our raised beds filled with dirt and planted with plants it was time to focus on being able to make more dirt. Or compost to be exact.

Compost is important because it reduces the amount of waste we send to landfills. Also, adding compost to soil makes it richer and more delicious to the plants. So, of course, the Bushwick Campus Farm needs compost bins.

AUP students were on the job to help get us started!

Here they are sifting the compost!

Here they are harvesting vermicompost - 
or worm poop.
