Compost Tea Adds Culture

Learning How to Heal the Soil

One task that helps regenerate the earth is the application of compost tea. Let the healing begin with microorganisms.

We also stand on the shoulders of those who research the life within soil. We could follow in their footsteps. We could read an article about Making Compost Tea and Extracts from Sustainable Studies Institute a non-profit educational and research institute founded by Dr. Elaine Ingham.

Action, Doing It, Carpe Diem

"Compost tea is a water-based, oxygen rich culture containing large populations of beneficial aerobic bacteria, nemotodes, fungi, and protozoa, which can be used to bioremediate toxins." -Scott Kellogg and Stacy Pettigrew, Toolbox for Sustainable City Living, page 185.

The DIY guide Toolbox for Sustainable City Living explains what compost tea is, the role of microorganisms, and provides step-by-step instructions on brewing and applying it.
