Organic Soil and Compost Workshop
Building and maintaining healthy soils is critical to ensuring an abundant, sustainable future. The best place to begin is our gardens. Healthy soil is a living, breathing community of organisms interacting dynamically to provide a wide variety of benefits to their ecosystems.One of the easiest methods for building and maintaining healthy soil in your garden is using compost and compost teas that you can produce yourself at home. Join Us in The Ecology Center garden to learn hands-on how to build and maintain healthy soil in your garden and beyond. In this workshop, we will: 1) Discuss the basics of healthy organic garden soils 2) Learn how to build soils using nitrogen fixers, bioaccumulators, and other soil building plants 3) Demonstrate hands-on how to implement the best composting method for your home 4) Learn how to utilize compost and compost tea in your garden All attendees will receive an informational hand-out to complement the subjects covered in the workshop, and take home a few samples of different compost from The Ecology Center.
