Another useful invention

Compost sieveGo Local Food is the proud owner of another no cost invention to help in the work that needs doing.

Ian, our grower, has been raiding spare materials in order to create a large sieve next to the compost heap. Shovel in the compost and the fine soil drops through the netting which keeps back a lot of the rougher “stuff” that doesn’t want digging in or spreading when we come to use the results of the composting.

Doubtless there will be tweaks before everyone is happy with the “invention” and decide to give it a name but the basic item is tested, useful and working.

Meantime the other useful invention, the Rusby wrapper mark 2, is still being well used around the Go Local fields  where biodegradable cornstarch is helping to protect the crops from weeds.
