Compost Tea and Extract Class

COMPOST TEA AND COMPOST EXTRACT CLASS DESCRIPTION (Compost Tea and Compost Extract Class is Closed to New Students)

You will learn how to start making compost tea and compost extract in these lecture-demonstration hands-on approach classes with an experienced Microbiologist as your Instructor. We will cover the processes that will maximize biological diversity to get the most bang for your buck. Actively Aerated Compost Tea (AACT) and Liquid Compost Extract (LCE) are the most efficient methods for bringing back microbe diversity. This allows you to eliminate inorganic fertilizers and herbicides which decrease diversity and degrade soil health. You will learn how to set up Actively Aerated Compost Tea and Compost Extract for analysis, what materials to use in your teas and in what proportions.

Registration is now open for the self-paced Compost Tea and Compost Extract Class and you can start now.

We need to know how to make compost tea that will contain the full set of organisms needed, at high biomass and activity levels. Depending on what you want to do, choose the method of supplying the organisms your soil needs to become healthy (from the point of view of the plant you want to grow) once again. Therefore, in this online class you will learn about controlling conditions so that beneficial organisms will win the day, not the disease or pest organisms. The source of the beneficial organisms is the compost, by definition an aerobic material. If it is hard to apply compost on your property, then consider whether a liquid form of that compost would be easier. Extract or tea? That depends on what you are trying to achieve.

  • Replenish beneficial soil organism with liquid forms of compost
  • Balance the soil organisms for desired plants, not weeds
  • End the use of toxic pesticides, inorganic fertilizers, and herbicides
  • Learn how to maximize biological diversity
  • Learn how to make protozoan infusions and nematode extractions

Find out how to make aerobic compost tea and extracts and reduce costs by removing toxic inorganic fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides from your life and your plant’s life. Set up the conditions that allow no foothold for disease-causing fungi, bacteria or pests to establish themselves. make the root zone of your plants a place that yield-reducing root grubs and nematodes will not enter. Tailor the soil to support the growth of the plants you want, not the weeds, that you don’t want. These sessions will demystify how to easily make high quality compost extracts and teas to replenish beneficial organisms in the soil and on all plant surfaces. See your garden or farm come to life without hours of back-breaking work.
