Tea Time For The Soil! How To Brew Your Very Own Compost Tea
Sustainable World Media visits Biodynamic grower Oscar Carmona of Healing Grounds Nursery in Goleta, California where he demonstrates how he makes Compost Tea in two different ways; with a brewer or with a bucket. By following his simple technique–you can make tea, too!
Compost Tea is an excellent way to build soil fertility, increase the microbial life on and in the soil and turn your food scraps (which most people throw in the trash) into a valuable soil amendment. When food scraps are buried in the landfill they emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) and methane gas which contributes to climate change. Why not turn waste into value? Making your own compost tea, saves you money and time- no more trips to the store to buy costly fertilizers.
Compost Tea contains billions of microbes and beneficial organisms that help plants maintain a healthy immune function. Keep your Soil Food Web alive and thriving. It’s Tea Time!
