At Hidden Garden Farm, we are recovering an old mining site and growing fresh food for the Christmas Island community.With our newly arrived large-scale composting equipment, we have built our first of many windrows of compost, using more then 50 tonnes of material. In 8 weeks, this will be finished compost, giving a powerful boost for growth on the farm.
We are already applying compost tea (plant and soil pro-biotic) to the farm and farm nursery with excellent results. The nursery is charging with 25% compost in the mix.
Planting/harvesting cycles have begun and we are planting about 2000 seedlings into the ground from the nursery each week and we are already harvesting twice a week to sell the local market.
Stay tuned for an exciting new video to come in the next couple of weeks!
