In preparation for the winter we have purchased two compost tumblers
for use during inclement weather. They are beautiful and efficient
containers that will allow continuation of our mission through the
frozen winter months, provided it does freeze. Without your support
this acquisition would not have been possible.
Each compost tumbler is a closed barrel shaped container that is
raised 18 inches off of the ground by a rotating frame. Food and
kitchen scraps are added to the tumbler where they are turned for a
4 week period, decomposing using the natural heat generated by
existing microbes. After 4 weeks the composted food waste is
transformed into earthy loam.
When you compost your food and kitchen scraps through wormorama, the
work is done in Allston. Your compost is picked up either on foot
or bicycle, so far, keeping your carbon footprint down. The compost
is turned in Lower Allston, and spring will bring our first batch of
finished Allston compost.
If you are feeling inspired by foodcycling - share this feeling with
your Allston friends and neighbors! There is enough room in this
compost pile for us all.
Thanks for believing!
