On the 21th April the first year students of the Medium Degree in Gardening and Florestry, visited the Composting Plant “Els Sots” in Centelles. Mr. Josep Padrós, the person in charge at the plant, explained the students the raw materials used in the plant, the composting process, the end products and their use. “Els Sots” is a composting plant that distinguishes itself by the use of aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms for the decomposition of organic matter. This combination avoids oxygenation of the composting piles and reduces the number of movements needed to be done in the piles, which has led to considerable costs savings. Gardeners can bring the garden cuttings and other garden waste to the plant and after they can buy the compost that they need in the construction and maintenance of gardens. We, the School, thank the company “Els Sots” for giving us the opportunity to make this interesting visit.
