FULL I Compost Extracts & Teas with Wormies (F)

Pre-registration is required for this program. This program is for adults and kids ages 10 and up with adult supervision.

Learn how to make your own compost tea and extracts with Wormies! This class will include a variety of recipes and information on quality ingredients, application methods, and beneficial organisms. The use of compost teas and extracts speeds the healing process of soil and can be easily incorporated in varying earthworks strategies, tree planting, garden installations, and fertility maintenance.

As Da Vinci once said, “Water is the driving force of all Nature.” This too is true within soil, and our ability to use this universal solvent to propagate microbes on an unfathomable microscopic level is a powerful regeneration tool. It’s a tool that greatly aids in healing years or centuries of land abuse and switches the paradigm of chemical resources to the use of biological resources. Thus having appropriate quantities of humidity in the soil allows microbes to flourish and keeps nutrient cycling.

This program is offered free of charge due to generous grant funding.
