Description

Composting Workshop:

By using biologically active compost and vermicompost, we are able to put diverse microbiology back into the soil food web, and bring a state of natural balance to your backyard or back forty.

It all starts in the soil.

There is more life under our feet than we can even imagine.

By using biologically active compost and vermicompost, we are able to put diverse microbiology back into the soil food web, and bring a state of natural balance to your backyard or back forty.

The participants will gain confidence in making compost that can actually be used. From tips and tricks that can be implemented for small or larger scale, to get the most out of your waste streams and the most for your soils. If we understand how a compost pile works and the fundamentals of what is causing the process then we can really dial in our own style that works for our environment, waste streams and physical capacity. We will also dive into some of the ins and outs of updated soil health, to understand the relationship better between soil and plant.

Living Soil Solutions educates about the biological properties of soil and provides a high level of customer service by using ethical products that help restore the relationship between soil and plant.

In this Workshop, we will have the opportunity to participate hands-on to buidling a compost pile and on what it takes to produce an amendment for your garden that is rich in beneficial microorganisms and nutrients! Whether it is for your tomatoes, flower garden, vegetables or even scale it up for your field crops... it all starts with the soil.

The workshop will be held at Forage & Farm west of Millarville from 1:00-4:00pm (Maps will be sent prior to the workshop)

Forage & Farm is a permaculture based farm that specializes in growing a variety of hardneck garlic. We practice crop rotation to reduce the possiblity of disease in the field and incorporate a variety of cover crops suited to build the soil. During the garlic growing season, we incorporate worm castings from vermicompost and brew compost teas and extracts to apply as foliar sprays to the plants.
