New Thanksgiving Event (So new it doesn’t have a name yet!)
Monday October 14 at 1pm
Bring your best compost, leaf mould, castings, or soil. We’ll mix our materials to create a microbe- and nutrient-rich blend, and then you’ll take home as much as you brought. Use it to inoculate your compost pile or garden.
Healthy soil is full of tiny living things that help plants grow. Damaged soil can lack many beneficial organisms. This event is about sharing the life in our soil and helping each other grow.
By sharing microbes we increase biodiversity and help heal chemical damage caused by our misunderstanding of soil over many decades.
Saturday November 2 – Last year 300 kids smashed over 500 pumpkins. You know you want to be part of that! Watch for details about this event on Facebook@CompostScool.
