Saturday March 8th 2:00PM to 4:00PM
Composting is the ultimate form of recycling, converting spent and unused plant materials into a rich amendment for the soil. Rich compost will support a whole new generation of plant growth next season and contributes resources that will remain in the soil for thousands of years! In this class, we will focus on building a compost pile that most efficiently converts the nutrients and soil organic matter in the starting materials into nutrients and organic matter in your soil. We will also look at compromises and alternative techniques that are appropriate in specific situations.
Class taught by Matt Drewno, the Manager of the Green-Belt Mini-Farm in Mendocino.
