Compost House Construction
In order to improve soil condition, restore and increase soil carbon levels and re-establish natural soil micro-organisms farmers need to add organic materials in the form of compost. To give farmers better access to compost, the IPNI program has established a farmer enterprise composting business in the heart of where the IPNI programs are being conducted.
From June through July a compost house was built by one of the farmer groups involved in the IPNI program, under the supervision of Cocoa Carer Darwis.
