Thermophilic Composting: Turning Yard and Kitchen Waste into Black Gold


Sunday, May 20th 2-4pm Thermophilic composting is used to rid compost of human pathogens, plant diseases, and weed seeds. The best part is you can gather most, if not all, of the ingredients from your kitchen and backyard waste. This class covers what thermophilic composting is, ingredients used in a compost pile, and methods used to create healthy compost. Help create a compost pile at the Farm using materials already at the Farm. Our instructor Branden Irvine is a Certified Permaculture Design Practitioner and has worked and trained with organizations restoring degraded lands to healthy ecosystems utilizing thermophilic composting, worm farming, compost tea, and native plant restoration projects. Mature 12+ welcome. Contact ARC for meeting location (Gold Hill/Placerville area) and to sign up. Cost: $15/members, $20. or 530-621-1224.
