Keeping Food Real Part III: Making Good Compost (Methods and Uses)

Sep 30, 2017 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

| $39
Soil

For Keeping Food Real III, making good compost (methods and uses) will be the topic as you dial in your compost-making skills at this hands-on workshop.

The ultimate soil-builder, good compost not only provides nutrients and organic matter, but also a healthy community of soil-microbiology to help your plants thrive. Learn to source appropriate materials, mix them at the proper proportions, and monitor the pile as it matures into black gold.

The Keeping Good Real III workshop is part classroom theory and part outdoors at the EcoGarden, so bring weather-appropriate clothing, wear rubber boots and bring a lunch.

You will leave with vermi-compost and a reference resource workbook.

Instructors: Dawn Deydey, Mary Cosman and Gaëtane Carignan

Pre-requisite: None

*Cost: $39
