What's the best way to dispose of leachate?
(Santa Barbara, CA)
I'm new to your website and just read all about leachate vs worm tea. Thank you for your clear distinctions.
I made a 2 bucket system for my worm farm last year. All the leachate is allowed to seep through holes in the top bucket for it to collect in the bottom bucket.
After sometime, there is a good amount of leachate in the bottom bucket. I used to put it on my plants in my garden as per other things I'd read on line, but wasn't noticing any benefits. On the contrary, some plants clearly didn't like it. Now I know why.
If it's that bad for the plants and ultimately the streams, lakes and oceans, where is the best place to dispose of the liquid?
I was thinking the toilet where it would go to the waist processing center. What do you think about that idea? Surely others have asked this of you already. Curious what you tell them.
Thanking you in advance for your time,
PS...love your website. I'll be back!
