Compost and Compost Tea (Parts I & II)
Virtual Class (ZOOM)
All compost is not created equal. So if you've learned the basics of composting, come take a deeper dive into this wonderful world with this two-class, online workshop. You will learn which type of composting is considered the gold standard and how to make aerated compost tea. You will also learn how to determine whether your soil needs fungal or bacterial compost, how to make these two types of compost, and the best way to use both. You will leave knowing how to harness the enriching, healing power of compost in your yard and garden.
Instructors: Kim Martin and Laurie Bostic, owners of Barking Cat Farm, focus on growing high quality crops in an organic and sustainable manner. Brix testing is done regularly to monitor the nutritional quality of the produce and compost and compost teas are applied to the soil to ensure that soil biology is constantly improving. Both Laurie & Kim have their Permaculture Design Certificate from Geoff Lawton’s Permaculture Design Course. Both have studied under Dr. Elaine Ingham and are working towards becoming Certified Soil Life Consultants. They offer permaculture design and soil biology consulting services to other growers and gardeners.
