No-turn composting method for soil carbon and crop growth

Holly Whitelaw in Cornwall is looking to collaborate with growers interested in trialling out the Johnson-Su Bioreactor method of compost making.

The bioreactor can be built by one person on-site and is said to produce a biologically enhanced aerobic compost because in this method, there is no need for turning.

This field lab could examine whether the enhanced fungal networks increase soil carbon sequestration and crop yields, as well as exploring the practicalities of creating and applying the compost.

Please contact info@innovativefarmers.org if you'd like to join the group.
