Organic Gardening Workshop
Saturday, November 5, 10:00 am-12:00 pm
956 Cole Street – $10 per person
Our friends Colum of Malibu Compost and Stephanie of Espoma will be leading a class at our Cole Valley location on Saturday, November 5, on the benefits of home composting and organic gardening. Composting is the decomposition of food scraps, yard trimmings, and soiled paper products into a rich, earthen material. It’s excellent for enriching garden soil and houseplants. It’s also a crucial way of reducing the volume of trash that we send to our landfills. As cities and counties across the state work toward a 100% waste diversion goal, it’s a simple step to help pitch in. Organic gardening ensures that water runoff from gardens does not send harmful chemicals to our waterways, and ultimately into the Bay and ocean. Malibu Compost offers compost and compost teas that repair your soil’s ecosystem, save water, and serve as a source of humus for plant ing and managing soil health while also emanating energetic life forces to vitalize vegetables, plants, flowers, lawns, gardens, and farms. Its line of Bu’s Blend™ products are handcrafted from a base of dairy cow manure, which is laid in rows to mature and is treated with biodynamic preparations that contain plant materials and minerals designed to increase microbial life and nutrients in the soil. Espoma’s mission is to offer the highest quality, most effective, natural, and organic products for the lawn and garden industry. It achieves this by sourcing the finest and purest natural ingredients available; adhering to strict quality-control standards throughout the production process; and continually improving and testing its products so that they provide generations of gardeners consistent and superior results. Space is limited, so sign up today! Your $10 entry fee will get you a $10 Cole Hardware gift card, a Cole Hardware fashion tote, and product samples to start your organic home gardening.
