                                                      packets, etc and they are therefore
sent to Karnataka to be burnt in the incinerator. He then explained how the wet waste is
used in composting and how he practices multiple-cropping. Apparently, food waste
takes 3 months to break down and the basic requirements for composting are air,
moisture and bacteria. He encouraged everyone to make their own black mud at home
from their very own wet waste. We also learnt about the Gliricidia Sepium that was
grown as a fence around their compound, we were told how it helps in enriching the soil
due to its nitrogen-fixation; and how people plant it as its smell keep rats and ultimately
snakes away. It was an informative talk and demo. Students had made him a thank-you
card, Principal brought along some refreshments and everyone went home happy.
