or drum of water (A lid is normally fitted to reduce the smell).

tube. The comfrey is put into the tube and compressed by a bottle, normally filled with soil of water.
Aerated Compost tea

The wormeries are not fully operational at present as we are unable to get the fruit and other lunch box waste from the facilities on site to feed the worms.
However the different types of wormeries can be seen with examples of worm compost. The Master composters apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Not strictly a composter. The Green Cone converts all food waste (fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, bones & dairy products) into CO2, water
and nutrients. This digester cannot be used if the drainage on the site is poor as the basket buried in the ground must have adequate drainage. The cone must not be filled above ground level.
