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. You’ll walk away knowing what goes into making a liquid fertilizer that your garden will love.
This is the second in a three-part workshop series with Cuauhtemoc Villa, and a part of Sonoma Garden Park’s Summer Speaker Series. The third and final workshop (with registration link provided) is:
Saturday, August 20th, 10am-12pm
