Biodigester Workshop

Last Saturday Ames Street hosted a Biodigester workshop. Dianne and John, Green Street entrants from a previous year, very kindly gave up their time to run the workshop. Simply, a Biodigester is the missing composting link and with one of these we will be able to avoid taking those car loads of pernicious weeds to land fill on a regular basis. So, you can add weeds like wandering willie, convolvulus, oxalis and kikuyu and then, as they reach such high heat, they break down to produce plant & soil food. The dirt doctor website has good instructions as to how to build one, http://www.dirtdoctor.co.nz/page.php?id=128.
These Biodigesters are part of our Green Streets Waste Reduction project (Waste Reduction Levy application), together with Kiwi 3-bay Compost Bins and worm farms. All together this should mean Ames Street can reduce their waste significantly!
