Compost Boot Camp

Bio stimulant Strategies for Regenerative Agriculture
One-Day Intensive, Hands On Training with Christine Jones and Gerry Gillespie

Two Dates Offered:
Wednesday, June 12 OR Thursday, June 13, 2019
Sign up for one of the dates here.

Green Cover Seed is offering these one-day workshops focused on how to make and apply beneficial life-supporting seed and soil inoculants in place of high analysis fertilizers and seed dressings. Topics include quorum sensing, replacing nitrogen fertilizers, transitioning to a microbial approach, and the application of auto-inducers to seeds to enable a reduction of inputs and costs in order to regenerate soils.

Learning Goals
Bioferments, Biostimulants, Biofertilizers, and Compost inoculants are simple biotechnologies that can help improve soil condition, stimulate plant growth and improve plant health. We will explore basic recipes for making these on-farm in an interactive, first-hand experience with a small group of participants in order to develop the skills and confidence to make and use your own products, with local inputs and minimal to no add-on costs. Equipment used for making and applying biostimulants will be available for viewing and explanation.
