Step 1: More Compost Coffee Than Compost Tea

My compost bin uses air from my pneumatic grid to pump the tea around the compost. The pneumatic grid is powered by a bubble pump and 2 solar powered air pumps. And it runs a fish pond, and its waterflea filter. It waters plants in a greenhouse and it also waters a pallet planter and 2 "boat" planters (They have "water in the hold" and I use airlift to pump this water up to the plants.
