The Phoenix

My brother in law Volkan had to liquidate the tools and equipment of his namesake Istanbul restaurant today. It got me wondering about what kind of phoenix(s) will rise from the ashes of COVID. I then remembered my ambitious nephew Yuma who started a composting operation creating soils. Farmers highly value soil, and he wants to help his local farmers. He taught me for example that lemon peels should not be mixed in with his compost. Part of the process is cultivating worms to churn the black matter and to collect food scraps. I could see him eventually expanding to waste food oil and converting this to diesel fuel. This isn’t glamorous to some people, but collecting waste oils and food scraps seems like a bright transition for anyone affected by the destruction and consolidation in the food service industry.
