Making Compost Tea
How do we culture microbes for compost tea? What microbes work best and why?
Brewing tea has never been more beneficial for you and your garden! This workshop will cover the basics of making your own compost tea using Bokashi - a fermented, anaerobic form of composting - as one of the main ingredients. This high-efficiency tea will break down organic matter into a form that can be easily absorbed by plants. Youll walk away knowing what goes into making a liquid fertilizer that your garden will love!
This is the second workshop of a three-part workshop series with Cuauhtemoc Villa (it is not required that you sign up for all three).
Saturday, August 6th, 10am-12pm (first workshop)

Sonoma Garden Park is a 6.1 acre public park, working farm, and educational resource. The land was donated to the city of Sonoma in the 1970's by Pauline Bond, a retired schoolteacher and avid gardener. The Sonoma Ecology Center developed and has been maintaining the Park since 1993.
