During this part of your training, we ask for payment of fees based on 20 hours mentoring time to work through the process of making good compost, compost extract, and compost tea. If you require more time than 20 hours of mentoring, then we will ask that you pay the hourly consulting rates of your mentor until you achieve the goal of making good compost, extracts and teas.
Once the quality of your composts, extracts and teas are approved, you will then put together your plan for converting the land you chose into a biologically managed plant production system. The endpoint desired is up to you to define, but the necessary food web structure must be achieved to allow all the benefits of a good food web to occur. Healthy plant growth must be achieved. We will work with you to optimize the plan, and then you will implement that plan.
