The opposite of right for pessimists is wrong, for optimists it is left.Juan Petry
Compost is wellknown in literature. Homer wrote about it, Aristotle developed a theory of compost / humus. And if you have a closer look at the food chain, compost and all its creatures are the hidden leader in the circle of life.
David established a bigger location for our compost handling early in 2016 and maintained the space later in his short and long visits since 2018. This camp of bacterias and mushrooms is an important factor in our garden design.
Again and again David was unhappy with the situation and status of the stacks and the mixture of indrediences in the three different chambers.
According to Murphy all what might be able to go wrong will go wrong and even what might not be able to go wrong will go wrong equal.
Actually the fourth or fifths generation of supporters and contributers are maintaining the compost. And a lot of times we find new bio waste in the wrong section or useless quantities of gras or hay on top.
The compost as a symbol of health and life is also a good sample for the challenge to bind together people coming and going in a very dynamic environment to act for a specific usefull purpose.
We are not able to establish a ruleset, and not, because we can not create a list of rules under which the compost should be used. We have no chance to push through these rules and to keep them alive.
The only thing we can do is to invite people to use it in a propper way. And the minimum of right is here the right stack.
For sure we will not have the best compost, but we have the best possible compost.
The location is a bit abandoned in May 2019 and we hope we will add soon the section for terra preta (by using the materiall from the dry toilets).
The compost reminds always to the circle of life. So we are waiting for a new circle in developing this camp of davids compost stacks, as well as we are waiting for a return of its creator.
