Garden Work Day 5/22/2022 Sun 1 pm

Sunday, May 22, 2022, 1 pm – 5 pm

We will be focusing on our bokashi-composting process, including the following:

  • Digging lots of soil (soil amended with bokashi and leaf compost over the years) — volunteers can take some of the soil for their own garden bed elsewhere, street tree pit, or houseplants.
  • In the dug out areas, we will bury/trench fermented food waste, mixing with plant matter (leaves, clippings, twigs/cut branches), and completely covering with soil and then mulch on top. This will amend and build the soil for future soil harvesting. (There will still be soil left over after the covering.)
  • Treating dropped-off food waste with bokashi (to ferment the food waste).

Please wear proper clothing and shoes for the garden-composting work. We have gardening/work gloves, if you don’t have or forgot to bring your own.
