NOFA Plans Clinic on Compost Tea in September
Compost tea is one of the oldest, yet most misunderstood, tools for the organic gardener — whether professional or amateur.
The Northeast Organic Farmers Association will hold a day-long seminar “Producing and Applying Actively Aerated Compost Tea” open to the public on Sept. 21 beginning at 9 a.m. at Stonewall Farm, Keene, N.H.
Here’s the official invite from NOFA:
Join us for a hands-on workshop on Producing and Applying Actively Aerated Compost Tea with Peter Schmidt of Compostwerks! LLC.
This workshop is a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience and to learn in a group setting. Some of the topics that will be covered include how to brew compost tea, customizing tea for specific uses, assessing compost tea quality and methods of application. The workshop will be conducted both outside on the farm and in a classroom setting.
Peter Schmidt, certified arborist and founding partner of Compostwerks! LLC has been involved in the horticultural industry for 25 years. He interacts with Dr. Elaine Ingham of the Soil Foodweb Inc. on a regular basis.
