There was a new activity at our edible garden this morning :)
We have a pile of well composted material inter-mixed with larger tree branches that had not broken down.
Dennis & Lydia brought a golden-coloured basket with fine metal mesh bottom. In its previous life, it was a beautiful hamper basket. In our community garden, it becomes a sieve for our compost material!
Small amounts of the coarse compost material was put on the basket, which was rapidly moved back and forth to create a sieving action. Fine material fell through the sieve onto the gunny sack material underneath, and transferred into a separate bag for future use. These gunny sacks are also recycled material as they previously held compost sponsored by the park management.
In total, we managed to sieve out 3 gunny sacks worth of fine home-made compost! The compost felt so good when we ran it through our fingers, and felt so alive.
