Event Description:

Compost Teas and Extracts

Saturday, July 12, 2014

11:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

Liquid compost materials have gone by several different names: teas, extracts, slurries, etc. There has been much debate among commercial producers, the scientific community, and gardening enthusiasts. The concept of compost teas is simple: put compost in water and let it sit to extract soluble nutrients and microorganisms. So what’s the problem? Join Rick Carr, Compost Production Specialist at Rodale Institute, for a stimulating discussion on the production, use and chemical and biological characteristics of compost teas and extracts.
