Introduction to Hot Composting with Sean Smith, Crooked Farmz

Learn more about improving microbial soil health to better support thriving vegetable gardens, perennial beds, or backyard urban farms during this workshop hosted by Sean Smith of Crooked Farmz. This program will cover the basics of creating 'hot compost' yourself to improve soil health organically, using techniques relevant for the urban context. We will discuss types of composters; the all-important Carbon:Nitrogen ratio; aeration and moisture; feedstocks and amendments; fungi, worms, and other non-human partners. You will also spend time developing a personal plan for generating compost in your own gardening context.

Tuesday, October 19, 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Tickets: Public - $25, TBG Member or Volunteer - $20 (plus fees + HST)
