02 May Compost Tea Making
by Marc Remillard
Get inspired and empowered to use compost tea with confidence. Compost Tea Making is a short book covering all you need to know to start using compost tea on vegetables, flowers, orchards, vineyards, and lawns. It addresses when, why, and how to use it for fertility as well as disease suppression. It offers recipes tailored to different situations, and explains how to produce suitable compost or worm castings to use in the brewing process.
The text works hand-in-hand with some fabulous photos of magnified microorganisms to render the mysterious, microscopic life that powers compost tea comprehensible at last! Aerobicity, protozoa, biofilm, and more, become fascinating and useful terms in this manual. The author cites both modern science and “wisdom accumulated through the ages” (ancient Romans used compost tea), to encourage more people to try using this organic fertilizing method.
Compost Tea Making is not only a practical guide, but a personally and passionately written book, drawing connections between the way we garden and the well-being of our environment and society.
