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)
