WHAT WE DO
We protect the environment by intensive organic farming and by recycling all manner of organic wastes on site, locally, which would otherwise be transported at huge cost to different waste facilities, where they are then either dumped into landfill or processed into an inferior soil conditioner and transported back to agriculture. We turn all this waste into optimum fertiliser/compost (HH-4) in 90 days.
This can be done in any rural setting or in peri urban areas. By manufacturing ‘fertile top soil’ (John Innis Laboratory) - HH-4, from all kinds of farm waste etc., we grow food in the place where it is consumed and thus sequester maximum amounts of carbon. This is known as BLACK CARBON FARMING.
HOW DO WE DO IT
In Our HH-2 superfast Composter units - with No moving parts - and No electrical hook up. They are self convecting and self condensing.
WHAT MAKES THEM WORK
and thus save large amounts of water and labour in the continued turning of the material. This is not necessary with the HH-2 units.
In this system
WE CULTURE SPECIFIC FUNGI AND BACTERIA TO PROLIFERATE OVER A SPECIFIC TIME FRAME -This is what makes optimum fertiliser and indeed the perfect worm food.
With over 20 years of research we are able:
TO CONDITION ANY SOIL TYPE – WITHOUT ANY KIND OF SOIL ANALYSIS
When the finished product HH-4 is correctly applied to the ground in a once yearly dressing all crop pests and disease are reduced to an absolute minimum on any original soil type. Irrigation requirements are also greatly reduced as this material FRESH HUMUS HOLDS 20 TIMES ITS OWN WEIGHT IN WATER. (Oxford Real Farming Conference 2015)
RESULT NO SLUGS NO SNAILS NO CATERPILLARS NO APHIDS etc.,
All made easier with the wheeled hoe. By operating this simple tool one person can keep an entire acre weed free.

B) Health All our crops contain fully synthesised protein and are thus unattractive to pests and disease.

We exemplify our work for schools, colleges and Universities to expound these principles into farming today. Also for NGO’s and their training staff, such as CRS., OXFAM and NORGESVEL, etc., who may wish to take this work to the rest of the world. We are situated on heavy London clay and so have initially applied a double dressing of HH-4 compost/fertiliser. This is made with our HH-2 Superfast Composter units. This system is known as Black Carbon Farming. The land at Well End had not previously been cultivated for 35 years and without the expense of mechanical subsoil treatment, we have employed deep rooting plants to crack the subsoil pan. Food grown in this way with the Zero Till method is much higher in minerals, vitamins and proteins and is ten times higher in anti-oxidants.
This is the original science of Sir Albert Howard of waste management for farms, gardens, allotments and community living and how to incorporate it into agriculture or any growing system today, with updates from India 1997. Any size mixed farm, or small holding can make all it’s own health giving fertiliser, reducing external inputs to zero. £20 + p&p firstname.lastname@example.org

Farming and Gardening for Health or Disease, Howard, 1945. available by post £10.00 + p&p email@example.com we regret to announce that this vitally important title for agriculture today has been allowed to run out of print… we are looking into this.
The health benefits of Howard’s work can be studied in the title The Living Soil, Lady Eve Balfour, 1943, Also available from us price £10.00 +p&p firstname.lastname@example.org but currently this title is also out of print

“ Our Patron – We met Julie Felix in 2012, who featured in a local concert that was put on to raise money for one of our course takers at Well End who raises money to do work for orphanages in Africa. At this event Julie became our patron.
