Learn about Compost Tea Brewing: Rain or Shine: Any time between 2 and 6

  • This location is shown only to members

This will be the second annual compost tea season opener. I will have a 55 gallon vortex compost tea brewer in operation to observe, as well as a demo of a 5 gallon system that can be constructed from easily obtained parts and is a great size for a home gardener. You are invited to show up any time between 2 and 6 pm on Friday, May 10th to view the brewer and to take home a complimentary gallon of the brew (bring a jug). This is an informal Meetup so come when you can and stay as long as you wish! Folks are also welcome to tour the garden and greenhouse.

    I spoke to some of you about a couple of things I do when I make tea. I fortify with two products, mycogrow and biotamax. You can google for sources and info. These are additional fungi and beneficial bacteria that I use for dipping seedlings and for soil amendment. I also use an organic fungicide, Actinovate. I've used mycogrow for years. Biotamax and actinovate I have only used in a limited container project, but there are good discussions on tomatoville.com about their use in combination.

    Great primer on compost tea, especially when viewed as part of the whole system at Ray's place. What an inspiring contrast to the average urban property. Great meetup group!
