June 7th 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM at Barking Cat Farm, West Tawakoni
Quit spending your time and money feeding your plants and come learn how to grow your soil life so your plants take care of themselves! We'll give an introduction on how to grow organically using sustainable and biological methods. Topics will range from soil biology, compost, vermicompost, compost tea making to testing with refractometers. The class will be a mix of hands on, discussion and some formal teaching. The class will be from 2:15 PM to 4:00 PM.
Before the class, come take a tour of our beautiful 20 acre farm that has a large wildlife population including deer, crows, hawks, herons, songbirds, owls, raccoons & more. Tour tickets are sold separately. The Farm Tour will be from 1:30 PM to 2:00 PM.
Our good friends from Texas Worm Ranch will be in attendance and will have Texas Worm Ranch products availble for sale. We will have organic vegetable & herb seeds for sale as well as some gardening supplies. We will also have 5 G compost tea makers for sale by pre-order. More details will be announced soon!
