James Millton's compost heap

Another short film from my New Zealand trip, which I've just posted on YouTube to accompany the write up that's appeared on the main site today.

Here we see James Millton's compost heap. Composting is an important part of organics and biodynamics. When it's done well, like this, the core of the heap reaches 70 degrees Centigrade, fuelled by microbial activity. That's really hot - too hot for most organisms to survive.

Josly, from following the link to your blog I can see that you have a serious, well developed interest in natural wine and compost making.
