Introduction to Compost Tea

Tuesday, October 26, 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Learn more about improving microbial soil health to better support thriving vegetable gardens, perennial beds, or backyard urban farms during this workshop hosted by Sean Smith of Crooked Farmz. This program will cover the basics of learning how to brew ‘actively aerobic compost tea’ yourself to improve microbial soil health. We will discuss the principles of brewing in a compost tea bubbler; simple compost tea recipes; amendments for bacterial and fungal brews; application rate, frequency, and shelf life. We will also demonstrate how to build a simple bubbler for use in your own gardening context.
