Our friend Nancy Klehm is conducting a seminar that might be of interest to our blog readers in Chicago.
From her PR Dept:
DIRT SHOP! - a hands-on composting intensive w/ Nance Klehm
Join us to learn how to re-build your compost pile!
Nancy will review basic composting principles and then dive deeper into the why and how as well as the differences between mesophilic and thermophilic compost technologies.
We will examine, trouble shoot and rebuild two existing compost piles using carbon and nitrogen sources from on-site. We will also learn how to finish off and cure compost so that it is a stable material you can use directly or in compost tea applications.
Please bring your questions, your gloves and pruning shears and if you have one, a sample of your garden’s or back yard’s compost pile.
where? Earnest Earth 2917 West Armitage
how much? $25
