Becoming Organic and Healthy

mulch-organic-farming-ugandaI have to admit, becoming an organic gardener takes much more patience and hard work than I expected. Before raise beds can go up and seeds can be placed in the ground, we need compost. Compost requires mulch (dry material), green material, and manure, and after collecting it, an additional 6 weeks to decompose. But our students hard work is getting them somewhere. They have been spending around 2 hours every afternoon collecting leafs and other dry materials. We should be ready to start our first compost pile by next week. organics-for-orphans-mulch
