Statia PDC cookbook

New Statian permanaut Claire Blair explains the recipe for Hügelkultur as she prepares for her final presentation to the STENAPA board members.

Laying the ground work with chocolate cake to represent wood logs, binding with whipped cream as soil and covering with banana cake for compost.

The finishing touches include green coloured icing, gummy worms and lollipops.


The result was surprising, hilarious, illustrative and memorable, not to mention a boost to the brain and blood sugar level fueling lively conversation on sustainable management of the botanical gardens.

A great result by carrying trough a ridiculous idea to fruition.
