Repair Soil with Compost Tea
Veggies and flowers love compost tea! Watering your Woolly School Garden with this special potion helps manage plant and soil health by adding beneficial nutrients and microbial life to your garden. Many people make compost tea from their own composted garden and kitchen scraps. If your school has a compost bin, you can too. You can also purchase compost tea from Malibu Compost. They sell bio-dynamic compost that you can soak in buckets of water, making a tea that you then use to water your plants. “This compost repairs your soil’s ecosystem, saves water and serves as a source of humus for planting and managing soil health while also emanating energetic life forces to vitalize your vegetables, plants, flowers, lawns, gardens, farms and our earth. Contains: Dairy cow manure, straw, vineyard wood chips, and biodynamic concentrations of yarrow, chamomile, valerian, stinging nettle, dandelion, and oak bark.” We recommend using your compost tea after you’ve first planted your Woolly Pockets, then reapply two to three times a year.
