A discussion of how we can increase the security our local food supply at a time when rising fuel costs, climate change and political turmoil make it particularly vulnerable. As seen through the lens of the Imani Gardens, located at 1680 Pacific Street and 87-91 Schenectady Street.
What's compost tea and how do you make it? Come find out on April 18 and 19 at Imani Garden! We'll be brewing a batch on Saturday and applying it on Sunday t...o our garden beds. Many soil biologists including Dr. Elaine Ingham believe that compost tea is an excellent way to amplify the biological activity in your compost. For a 10 minute video that explains how to make compost tea click here.
We'll also be doing some work to get the garden ready for spring, including bringing leaves from a nearby park in a wheelbarrow brigade and cleaning out our water storage tanks and fish ponds.
Lots of fun. Bring some work gloves and if you have them, rubber gloves for cleaning the tanks and ponds.
We'll be providing some tasty vegetarian stew. Bring your favorite beverage and some hearty bread.
See you there! Donation of $5 requested to cover material costs.
Loving those worms in the compost pile at Imani!
