Why is nutrient cycling important? It’s the natural process of decomposition and renewal that drives soil fertility. Through the creation and application of compost, you can build organic matter and microbiology in the soil, improving its structure and water-holding capacity and sequestering CO2 from the atmosphere.
Take a deep dive with guest facilitator Dr. David White and the WBLT team into the world of compost production and application. Learn what materials you can use for your compost, the different processes to create it, and various ways you can apply it to your landscape to create a thriving, healthy production system.
We will build compost systems, analyze soil microbiology, make compost teas, and more. Whether you’re tending a backyard garden or broad rangelands, you’ll leave this course ready to set up nutrient cycling systems of your own with a foundational understanding of what type of compost to apply, where, and when.
