    Hi Janine, I was at the ecoventure camp on the 6th or 7th of january last and was very disappointed that their garbage system still was not better organised. They were not using the bokashi bins at all and even worse, none of the 3 staff members present knew how it worked (or showed any enthousiasm for the system). the Only reaction I get from Matt is that the kids do not want to follow the system, but you know just as well that it is more a matter of education then any thing else.
    I hope the message above means that you were there and reinvigorated them in using the system, but they need a lot of help and support to keep it going.
    Also, if you drive in, you pass by a dump in a hole, where all garbage is dumped together, no recycling what so ever… No idea why this is not more important to them. i really am very disappointed and hope you were able to get them on the right path.
    regards, Kristien

    Dear Kristien
    The retraining of the Ecoventure staff on how to use the bokashi system was done by us on 26 January. We received postive feedback from the kitchen staff but , of course, it will be the long term result which proves whether the system is being used correctly and on a regular basis. A quotation has been provided, on Ecoventure’s request, by a company who supplies bins for recycling and sponsors for those bins are being sought by the Ecoventure camp. These are positive steps in the right direction but as you suggested reinforcement is always helpful.
