Iโ€™m teaching my first online BREW ALONG next Sunday! Join Me live from the @oldtreebrewery fermentation station to learn the best recipe and method to make 5, 10 or 20 litres of Elderflower champagne. With wild yeast, or with wine yeast. And how to make elderflower champagne cordial that you can then use to make elderflower champagne in batches (that are the right size for your fridge) all summer! First 20 places are 25% off and the link is in our bio, hope you can make it ๐Ÿฅ‚โœจ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒณ #elderflower #elderflowerbubbly #elderflowerchampagne #elderflowerchampagneworkshop.

Moment of silence for all the people who say they donโ€™t โ€˜believeโ€™ in organic farming. That it canโ€™t feed the world. That itโ€™s not economically โ€˜viableโ€™. The people that have come that far away from home. Upon whose support the industrial scale conversion of our planets ๐ŸŒŽ ecosystems into money continues and our climate is destabilised... For all the people this far removed, this seperate from life and all that makes life live. Who live themselves, like the walking dead. 
Beautiful post ๐Ÿ™ @earthfortllc for the a constant education on what the microscope is always teaching ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’š #walkingdead #wakinglife #soilhealth #lifeonearth #lifeinearth.

Compost loo build nearly complete. Just a few more panels to fit and a saw dust container to make on the inside. Reclaimed polycarbonate windows and timber from disused fencing panels and workshop off cuts. 
Currently using a 4ft pit and will move in a year but could work with 30 litres buckets and be part of a hot composting set up if we really had our shit together! Urine separator being planned with biochar as the nutrient storage that can be used for (non-urban) forest garden composts and mulches. #woodland #compostloo #number2 #poowithaview.

I have made first full trailer of #biochar to start making #Terrapreta with for Brighton members of @oldtreebrewery Compost Club. Thanks to @brian_hughes45 for the constant inspiration and advice on this method that enables me to start making a lot more. 
Next step is to crush the charcoal using a manual crusher whilst soaking it with an aerobic #composttea and / or adding to the compost tumblers. This is going to create an incredible black soil, material that is the proper meaning of the word HUMMUS. I will be waxing lyrical about the virtues of this material from now on, as the more i learn about the #soilfoodweb and itโ€™s importance to our future the more Iโ€™m motivated to make it and start supplying it to people for their gardens and farms. This has become my #climate #activism FUN FACT - Hummus can hold TEN TIMES itโ€™s own volume in water ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒณ.

play_circle_filled Iโ€™ve been making lots of biochar because I believe in itโ€™s potential to reverse climate change and rebuild soil structure and fertility. Here is a little clip of some of musings hope you enjoy it!.

Wood Chip. Great mulch. Helps plants ๐ŸŒฑ beat droughts. Thanks to my lovely freind Alice @sacred_seeds I can supply a bit to those in need for their gardens, allotments, fruit trees, paths and whatever. Trailer-fulls like this. Medium well rotted, with earthworms in, if you like. About 500 litres in this trailer. ยฃ40 delivered in a pile at your gate or ยฃ50 in 5 carry-able recycled plastic bags. Anyone friends in Brighton or Lewes need any drop me a message or text in the next couple of weeks and Iโ€™ll sort it out for you this month. Also if you need shredded cardboard to make your compost work better checkout compost club on the @oldtreebrewery website and you can now get a CARBON HOME subscription - giving you all the carbon you need to make natural hot compost without flies and bad smells in any patch of ground. Or join compost club to get a collection and annual compost delivery to save your nutrients from landfill ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ„โญ๏ธ.

play_circle_filled Compost day today! I am building a community compost station in the old town of #lewes with my good freind and building ninja @earthupmarketgarden 
Here is a close up of some of the compost we made with the @oldtreebrewery spent tea and botanicals + the shredded cardboard im supplying as part of #compost club 
This is after just 4 weeks in the @joraform tumbler that we use and then a couple more weeks with the earthworms! Itโ€™s aMazing stuff and Iโ€™m excited to be making a lot more of it, the more signups weโ€™re getting to compost club. Do you live in Brighton, Hove or Lewes? If so checkout Compost Club at www.oldtree.house and help us save the world ๐ŸŒ from landfill and use nutrients to create forest gardens instead of methane and CO2!! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ›บ๐Ÿ‘Š #composteverything #compostclub #earthworms.

Itโ€™s international compost awareness week this week and I am over the moon that we have had 5 more sign ups to @oldtreebrewery Compost Club over the past 2 days. With another 6 signups we are well on our way to having a sustainable social enterprise that redirects #local food waste to feed our local ๐ŸŒฑecosystems from the ground up whilst building growing community and is also single-use plastics free!  Making compost locally from everything that we can is fundamental for any kind of desirable future. @kisstheground KNOW @gardenerjeff KNOWS @geofflawt and my freind and collaborator in #compostclub @earthupmarketgarden KNOW. Like @charles_dowding and this writer Wendell Berry and @dr.elaines.soil.foodweb.school and many other great biologists and authors know - we need to be returning the nutrients we are using to the soil to feed the life that feeds us if we want to eat healthily and re-stabilise our ๐ŸŒŽ climate.. As soon as weโ€™ve got this established and made sure itโ€™s all energetically sustainable weโ€™re going to open source it and start educating others to replicate it elsewhere - the more compost we can make in the areas people live and the least distance and processing it has to undergo to feed trees and plants again - the more potential we have to start living regenerative our and reverse the damage that our industrial civilisation has caused since it decided that we are somehow separate from nature .. #paradigmshift #compost #compostcapitalism #soil #health #earthrepair.

Happy black currants taken from cuttings, grown on in our planters the brewery in #biochar enriched #compost heading back to @rockfarmveg soon to be planted in the drink forest garden and one day give enough yield for @oldtreebrewery to make Cassis once everyoneโ€™s vitamin C needs are met!! #blackcurrant #blackcurrentwine #ribes #containergrowing.

Over the moon ๐ŸŒ“ to supply this legend with #compost #carbon yesterday! And to see that it has already helped his communities compost heap! ๐Ÿ’ฉ I am pressing my shredder into service way more now people have realised the value of compost more โ€” we need to be shredding all of the cardboard ๐Ÿ“ฆ everything gets delivered in! Itโ€™s essential to feed the hot composting microbes that make our food waste compost faster and safer. And the Earth worms! Earth worms love shredded cardboard, and it stops #compost being too wet and attracting flies! Friends in Brighton - start saving me all your cardboard without plastic on on it. (I can deal with a tiny bit of plastic when Iโ€™m shredding but only like one strip!) checkout #compostclub now on the old tree brewery website and join the regional community if you can ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ’š.
