Backyard Composting and Bokashi Basics Workshop – Pine Valley
Mar 11, 2023 10:00AM—12:00PM
Pine Valley Branch Library, 28804 Old Hwy 80, Pine Valley, CA, 91962
Join Solana Center for this 2-hour presentation where you will learn the basics of traditional composting and get an introduction to bokashi, a fermentation method that will enable you to compost all your food waste, including meat, dairy, and liquids.
This “pre-composting” process uses an inoculant of effective microbes to preserve kitchen scraps until you’re ready to incorporate them into your soil or compost bin. Learn how bokashi can be used to increase your organic waste diversion and enrich your soil microbiome.
Residents of unincorporated County of San Diego will receive preferential registration. All others will be placed on a waitlist and notified of space available 1-2 weeks before the workshop. Unincorporated residents who attend can also receive a free food scraps caddy, courtesy of the County of San Diego. Check out the caddy here.
