Enable the farm to turn tree prunings into woodchip for mulch and compost.
Share the machine with neighbours and farmers; encouraging chipping and composting rather the burning of wood.
Marda Farm is a demonstration Permaculture site based in the West Bank, Palestine. It runs training and volunteer opportunities for both Palestinians and people from around the world, supporting skill sharing and food sovereignty. The farm's forest garden is now maturing and there is a lack of space for storing all the prunings, resulting in some wood being burnt.A wood chipper will enable the farm to turn these prunings into woodchip for mulching and composting, and can be shared with local olive farmers to also turn their prunings into compost.
