It had been a long time from the last blog update.

Co+labo members are now staying Meme Meadows, Taiki-cho, Hokkaido.
New Harvard house is next to our Barn House!

The main purpose of this visit is collecting compost heating data and taking pictures of the heating system because we have started our collaboration with Ikaga Lab in Keio to further develop the compost system before our summer visit.

We are in Meme Meadows from 14th April, and we made the compost storage empty and cleaned it up yesterday, while today we took the picture of the storage and set thermometers for experiment today.
This time, we want to measure not only physical data but also invisible data like our feelings.
We will start designing the exterior charcoal shelves tomorrow, which we hope to start the construction by summer.

We have a strong helper Antonella Colistra from Politecnico di Milano in Italy.
She will design the charcoal shelves with us from her engineering viewpoint.

We still have a lot of work to do tomorrow.
So, meet us again.
See you!
