Proposed plan of action on substrate planning

  • Soil test to gauge proportion on clay / loam / silt and ph of available soil substrate

  • Test soil sifter

  • Work out how many bricks required for drainage layer and to go inside wire mesh around the edge

  • Need to consider how many different grades of soil are required

  • How much coffee chaff is useful?

  • Need to consider how to bag and transport material
