Micro Greens

Transient

An great addition to any garden are trays of micro greens, which are very easy and fast to grow, and taste delicious in salads.  When setting up trays at your home, it's important to look for a sheltered and sunny location.  You'll see from the images that we've set up a tray frame against the walls of our adobe earth home, allowing the solar warmth of the walls to assist in the growing. Wooden frames can be designed and built to suit the dimensions of your allocated space, and can be moved around depending on the season and sun.

Worm Farming

Transient

Back in 2011, a good friend of mine Ben Bell launched his new business venture 'The Hungry Bin'.  Designed and made in New Zealand, I have to say this has been one the best products I've seen on the market for composting. It's fast, convenient and extremely efficient with the ability to process up to 2.0kilos of waste per day.  I also really like the design, as does my partner, who never really like dealing with the whole worm thing!
