Description

START MAKING COMPOST TEA AND EXTRACT

We will cover the processes that will maximize biology 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.

We need to know how to make compost tea and compost extract 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 beneficial organisms will win the day, not disease or pest organisms. The source of the beneficial organisms is found in 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.

“When we are talking about compost tea or compost extract we are really talking about getting the organisms back into the soil. With compost tea or compost extract you want to make certain what you’re lacking in soil to begin with, so you know what you need to put back into the soil.”

Testimonials

“This class was eye-opening to me! (The Class goes through) all the factors playing into the quality of our brews, sharing what actually works from the experience gathered in the past few years – and why! My first brew after the course was already quite different from the ones I’d been making before – much more fungal, which had seemed an impossible task to now. If you’re serious about making and using proper compost tea, this course is going to up your game in a stellar fashion!” N.
