GrowTogether with us for Earth Week at Part 2 of the 38th Annual GreenThumb GrowTogether Conference! Living microorganisms are working constantly to keep our world balanced. In soil, they harmonize to sustain a living system that passes life along to the ecosystem rooted in it. Effective microorganisms (EM1) are a group of three microbes that promote higher beneficial microbe populations in soil. Although these occur organically in nature, many of our soils have been depleted of their microbial life. The good news is, we can make EM1 in our own homes! The applications are endless: drain cleaner, declogger, fertilizer, compost accelerator, Bokashi starter, natural herbicide, fungicide,and insecticide, surface sanitizer, odor neutralizer, you name it. In this workshop, participants will learn how to recycle their food waste into Bokashi compost, how to promote healthy microorganisms in soil, and how to take advantage of the many additional benefits EM1 has to offer.

Register on Eventbrite.

Facilitated by Sacesha Bennett and Emely Chahin, Paradise Community Garden. Sacesha seeks to help others understand simplistic ways to help the environment. With an open mind and circular goal, Sacesha has practiced various types of composting and has passionately searched for innovations that limit waste and greenhouse gases. Emely is part of the GreenThumb Youth Leadership Council.

Rain date: Sunday, April 24, same time
