Keepin Food Real — Making Good Compost (Methods and Uses)

Saturday, September 30, 2017 - Saturday, September 30, 2017
Elk Valley Branch
Fernie Community EcoGarden

Dial in your compost-making skills at this hands-on workshop. The ultimate soil-builder, good compost not only provides nutrients and organic matter, but also a healthy community of soil-microbiology to help your plants thrive. Learn to source appropriate materials, mix them at the proper proportions, and monitor the pile as it matures into black gold. This workshop is part classroom theory and part outdoors at the EcoGarden, so bring weather-appropriate clothing, wear rubber boots and bring a lunch. Participants will leave with vermicompost and a reference resource workbook.

Instructors: Dawn Deydey, Mary Cosman and Gaëtane Carignan
