The field laid out in the shape of butterfly wing and border of each field is stable with coconut husk and the rest now being mulch with dry grass for later planting. Here you see our gardener Kadek and our italian long-term volunteer Luca. They both become best friends, the italian teaching Kadek english and Kadek teaching to the italian bahasa while working hand to hand.
Ni Wayan Eramita is one of our students in her third year of computer programming school. In exchange for working two hours a week at Jiwa Damai, she receives a full sponsorship through the Lagu Damai Foundation.
This is our Lumbung. This Balinese style housing is perfect for getting you in the right mindset to enjoy all that Jiwa Damai has to offer. The mosquito net allows the sounds of nature to come through but keeps the bugs out.
The Kubu (just finished this month) provides a nice retreat after a day of working in the garden. The cozy interior is a nice taste of home, but the beauty of the flowers, trees, and creatures of the garden are just outside the door (most of the time).
The Banyan room provides volunteers with a dormitory style living arrangement just off of the main office.
More about composting – Vermicomposting Introduction Vermicompost (also called worm compost vermicast, worm castings, worm humus or worm manure) is the base-product of the breakdown of natural material by earthworms. Vermicompost is a nutrient-rich, organic fertilizer, and soil conditioner. The process of making vermicompost is called vermicomposting. Vermicompost contains not only worm castings, but also bedding materials and organic wastes at a mixture of stages of decomposition. It also contains worms at different stages of growth and other microorganisms associated with the process. Earthworms’ castings in the home garden usually contain 5 to 10 times more additional nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium than the adjacent soil. Secretions in the intestinal tracts of the worms, along with soil passing through the worms, make the nutrients needed by plants more concentrated and available for plant uptake.
