How to make and use compost tea webinar
University of Arizona Cooperative Extension Gila County presents: Garden and Country Extension Webinar Series A Zoom webinar (60-minutes or less) featuring a variety of horticultural and natural resource topics relevant to the environmental conditions and residential concerns of Gila County, Arizona.
Featured Topic: How to make and use compost tea
Featured Speaker: Richard Johnson, Arizona organic gardener and compost maker for the past 20 years. Rich moved to Tucson in 1988 and learned desert gardening and composting from the Tucson Organic Gardeners club that is now in its 49th year. Applying these techniques to his 1/5 acre lot he was able to use his homemade compost to grow vegetables year round, despite 115° heat and 17° frost. In 2019, he became a UA Master Gardener in Gila County.
Webinar Overview: Compost tea is one of those often misused, misunderstood terms that gardeners throw around from time to time. The old method of making it has limited benefits and may end up harming your plants more than helping. So it’s time to learn what ACTIVELY AERATED COMPOST TEA is all about. In my presentation you will learn about what equipment to use, how to make it yourself for very little money, how to “brew” compost tea, what to do with it once you have it and what it does for your plants. Do your plants a favor and give them a shot of the beneficial microbes that deliver first class plants in your garden.
