Really can’t get more simple that this barrel farm.. I call it a dump & walk barrel as that is how I feed it.. A catcher or 2 or lawn clippings get dumped into the barrels & I walk away, its as easy as that.. The prunings & old plants from the veggie bed in the patch go in whole if they are small enough or get the once over with the lawnmower to chop them up a bit if they are to large.. A great type of farm to have under a fruit tree as any nutrients that leach out will feed the tree..

A quick look at the composting worms in the aquaponic grow beds.. They are a very useful addition as they help to break down waste further into plant friendly nutriments..
