Fun with composting

This week my Garbology 101 class went to our school’s estate to learn about composting. The estate’s director, Santosh, who I’ve learned so much from about farming (he runs an indigenous seed bank), indigenous cows (we have a sperm bank to help promote local species), and composting. Yesterday, he shared his wealth of knowledge with the children who had lots of great questions for him, including about creating biofuel from the cow dung. The children got to get their hands dirty, too, so they could see the heat generated by the decomposing organic matter and studying the earthworms in the ground. The cow dung patties on the wall are courtesy of the second and third standard children who were at the estate recently and had fun with dung!
