Compost is an essential part of a Biointensive garden. It helps to improve soil fertility, grow healthier plants, reduce insect damage, conserve water, recycle kitchen and garden waste! Naturally! And it’s easy! We can maintain a more sustainable garden if we understand the decomposition process and use the materials our garden generates in the most efficient way. It’s exciting to see compost materials turn into brown gold!

In this class you will learn:

  • how compost works
  • why compost is important for sustainability
  • how to practically produce lots of quality compost

During the class we will build a Biointensive compost pile in the garden.

Carol Cox, an expert gardener, managed Ecology Action’s Research Garden in Willits for nearly twenty years. Now she gardens in an empty lot in the middle of Willits, in collaboration with her neighbors.
