Composting with Bokashi
How do microbes break down waste? Why do some compost piles thrive and others fail? How can we increase our chances of a successful compost pile or worm bin?

During this workshop youll learn the answers to these questions and also how to use Bokashi - a fermented, anaerobic form of composting - and apply it to soil to create rich, organic matter for your garden. Teaming with active microbial life, Bokashi can supercharge soil with good microorganisms, leading to healthier plants and as a result, more nutritious and delicious food for you and your entire family.

This is the first workshop of a three-part workshop series with Cuauhtemoc Villa (it is not required that you sign up for all three).

Saturday, August 13th, 10am-12pm (second workshop)
Making Compost Tea

Saturday, August 20th, 10am-12pm (last workshop)
Reducing Waste: Indigenous Permaculture Practices

Cuauhtemoc Villa is an expert on Native American farming practices and on the making and use of bokashi, a fermented, anaerobic form of composting. He promotes sustainable agriculture development in his outreach programs for youths and adults, encouraging best-use practices for future generations.

Please arrive 15 minutes before the workshop begins to complete the sign-in process. There may be some opportunities for hands-on work, so if youd like to contribute please bring gloves and dress accordingly.  Please bring a lawn chair or blanket and a water bottle, and dress in layers.
