WORK­ING WITH NA­TURE

Good - - Good Stuff -

On a visit to Matakana Botan­i­cals (see page 100) Good was im­pressed by its Bi­olytix’s waste­water treat­ment sys­tem BioPod; an award-win­ning sep­tic worm sys­tem. The BioPod cham­bers are es­sen­tially “eco sys­tems in a tank” and use tiger worms and other or­gan­isms to con­vert house­hold sewage into gar­den wa­ter. At Matakana Botan­i­cals this is trans­ferred to plants via an un­der­ground ir­ri­ga­tion net­work. It uses 90 per cent less en­ergy than other aer­ated sep­tics, no harm­ful chem­i­cals and is odour­less. bi­olytix.com
