Learn the basics of compost ecology in this up close and personal expose on the FBI! We’ll investigate the inner working of your backyard compost heap to see how fungi, bacteria, and invertebrates (the FBI) work together to produce healthy soil. You’ll walk away with a new appreciation for decay and a better understanding of how to promote the healthiest and happiest compost communities in town.
This workshop will be taught by Matthew Kemshaw, the Urban Agriculture Coordinator for LifeCycles. Matthew is an an environmental education student as well as an urban ag superstar and feels particularly passionate about creating giant compost piles.
