How to Make Nutrient Rich Humifying Compost
10 May, 2018
10am - 3pm
Wardington Manor Banbury OX17 1SW
We will discover why our soils are so degraded and how we can make the best microbially active compost to enrich the soil and grow nutrient dense food.
We will learn the basics of a Controlled Aerobic Composting process: a slide lecture will provide a fundamental understanding of why it is absolutely essential to create aerobic compost and the prerequisites to do so successfully.
Through the understanding of the needs of soils and their life, we will look at composting practices. A controlled, aerobic composting process guarantees, that the raw organic matter is transformed into nutrient stable clay-humus-complexes, containing humus-forming microorganisms, that will teach soils how to detoxify themselves, how to feed the plant properly and abundantly, eliminate disease and weed problems and how to reestablish soil fertility.
We will also look at using compost teas. How to produce compost tea properly and how to apply it, in order to gain the greatest benefits.
The afternoon will focus on practical compost work to enable us to create high quality compost efficiently at home and how to make and apply compost teas.
