Humanure Cumquat Harvest

Postedby on in Milkwood
cumquats3
Last Spring Nick gave a Tedx talk about stewarding our most available nutrients to grow food for our communities in a closed-loop system. Yes, he was talking about humanure. And during said talk, Nick had a healthy, humanure-grown cumquat tree on stage with him. During the talk, some of the cumquats from this tree were passed around the audience and munched on, to illustrate the point that when processed safely in a biological system, humanure can contribute hugely to the fertility of the soil that grows great fruit trees. Following on from that Cumquat Tree’s 15 minutes of fame down in Canberra, Nick packed it onto the ute and brought it back to Milkwood Farm. Said cumquat now lives in a pot in the tiny house courtyard, with a thick layer of chocolate mint growing below it. Rose recently picked a flush of fruit from this extremely healthy specimen and...

Making an Upside Down Fire

Postedby on in Milkwood
upside down fire1
The upside down fire technique rocks. It’s a cleaner burn with far less smoke and better combustion, gives off more heat, needs less tending and uses the embodied energy in wood more efficiently than the tipi-esque fire method. As an added bonus, the first time you make a fire like this in front of a ring of uninitiated folks, you exist in a ring of utter skepticism. Which makes your rockin upside down fire all the better when it works beautifully. Paul (Speedy) Ward introduced this fire-making method to Milkwood Farm last year, in our campfire circle where many evenings are spent after a day of work or education, watching the sunset and waiting for yet another scrummy dinner to emerge from Rose’s kitchen. As one of the ring of utter skeptics that day, I’s sorry to say that i didn’t believe it would work. But it has, that evening...
