Kalawili had the pleasure to show our organic waste treatment system based on Black Soldier Flies to Antonio Alvarez and William Espina yesterday.
The EL Nido Chamber of Commerce came to Kalawili to understand how black soldier fly can
help in treating organic wastes to product animal protein food and fertilizer.
Thanks to Romar Miranda of Palawan News, we got a very nice article in the local magazine !
Read the whole story here :
Our dragon fruit farm is now well established and should start giving fruits by next year.
Once the dragon fruit stem reaches the top, they are cut just above the wooden stand to force them to split.
For each stem, 6 branches should stay and from each branch, 2 new shoots.
After 2 weeks and 3 feeding of our BSF larvae bins, the result is a nice composting material that can either be to our worm bins or used directly in the garden beds.
At first feeding, when the bins are populated with 5 days old BSF larvae :
After 2 weeks, the BSF pupae are self harvested and the residual is a nice compost material.
Our new insectarium is finally completed. Our old one is still giving between 30g-40g of eggs every 2 days. Now with the addition of the new one which is comprised of 2 insectarium in one building, we have the capacity to harvest 100g-120g every 2 days.
This shows how our Banana/Papaya circles have grown in less than a year between late 2018 and mid 2019.
Above : June 2019. We have several Banana and Papaya circles now. Both are feeding from the organic material accumulated in the pit.
Above. Our banana and papaya circle in december 2018. Papaya seeds were just planted.
This is a short video of Kalawili’s BSF insectarium showing thousands of black soldier flies.
Our new pig farm is being built. We have 6 pigs now and the new facility can take 10 mature pigs.
