Healthy Soils Workshop Series: Compost Tea for the Garden Workshop

April 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

with Christina Nikolic

This class can be taken on its own or as part of our Healthy Soils Series. First, what is compost tea, and why is everyone raving about it? Compost tea is the controlled extraction of microorganisms and nutrients from a small amount of high-quality compost and additional nutrient sources into water. The tea can be sprayed on the soil and plants in order to inoculate the landscape with these beneficial microorganisms. Learn about the benefits of compost tea and how to brew it with Christina Nikolic from the Organic Gardeners Pantry. Each participant will take home some compost tea to use in their own gardens.
