Looking Good 10 June 2019posted: 11/6/2019 at 06:55:19
Our goat manure provides one of the best forms of organic fertiliser available. But containing plastic pollution? In my garden?
Thatís right. Not looking so good as one thought!
Along with the goat bedding (straw) and droppings goes our hen bedding and droppings. We recycle shredded paper (from the office of a friend) for our hen house, rather than using wood sawdust bought from the Agricultural Merchants.
This last year our garden soil has been giving up shredded plastic. It appears that much of the shredded paper from our friendís business now contains paper incorporating plastic. Much of it clear plastic Ė at least itís clear when itís been through our composting process for a year. We now find weíre weeding out plastic shreds from our gardenÖ.
Where will it end?
