Last week I moved the first compost bins to the area so it actually looks like something is happening – other than just in my head. Hugo helped me transfer the not-yet-ready compost I have been making to the new bins.
I was happy to see lots of worms transforming the plant material into beautiful compost.
When I was at Costa earlier this week I suddenly realised they probably throw out lots of used coffee grounds. And those are a great source of ‘green’ (although they are brown) material. I guessed they would heat up my Hotbin considerably. And they did! That’s 70 degrees Celsius on the thermometer.
Let me know if you are a regular visitor of Costa and would be happy to bring their coffee grounds to the project.
An update on the donations: I have £185 now, only £15 short for a hotbin. I hope the money comes in this week! Then I can order one, put it in place, move what sits in my present hotbins into it and then move the two existing hotbins to the area.
Are you happy to give some money and support this project? You can do that here or when you bump into me 🙂
I must say that I had a lot of people telling me they love the project and want to be involved and putting bank notes in my hand.
