Composting Update

Over the past few weeks, seaweed from the Sargasso Sea has been washing up on the shores of Grenada and has posed serious problems for local ecosystems and industries. The CC6 Grenada News team came to speak with intern Alexander Thompson about how CFFI has turned this seaweed problem into a solution for farmers on the island.
Alexander explains how CFFI uses excess seaweed from Grenada's shores to make natural compost and give back to farmers. Since CFFI's composting project began just a year ago, the demand for natural compost has nearly quadrupled.

A big thanks to the CC6 Grenada film crew for reporting this story.
