Compost & Compost Tea with Marney Blair
May 05, 2009 - Autumn from Peaceful Valley
Our conference room was packed on Saturday for Marney Blair’s composting workshop and with good reason… Marney had us all sitting on the edge of our seats as she explained micro-biological activity! She’s a great teacher, full of passion and endless knowledge to share.
If you missed the workshop, we’re planning to have her back to teach us all more soon. In the meantime, I wanted to share a few token highlights from my conversation with Marney.
Q: What’s your favorite informational resource on composting?
Q: As a biodynamic farmer, what’s your favorite book?
Q: What is compost tea used for?
Q: How do you make compost tea?
I really enjoyed myself at Marney’s workshop and learned more than a few things myself! The “ah ha” moment for me was when she said that compost, when finished, will have a neutral pH! Even when you use a base of oak leaves or pine needles (both of which are acidic)? Yes! This is great news since my yard is covered with nothing but pine needles and oak leaves.
