This advanced composting class will show participants how to make a batch of compost tea, an aerated brew of finished compost in water. Making actively aerated compost tea creates an explosion of beneficial bacteria and fungi found in compost. Compost tea can be applied to plants as a foliar spray or soil soak. Participants will want to have already attended Compost 101 or have sufficient knowledge and confidence to make quality compost on their own.
Ticket price includes admission.
