Tea Party Workshop: Feb. 5 in Santa Barbara! Written by

Denise Ritchie of Malibu compost Company and Oscar Carmona of Healing Grounds Nursery are having a Winter tea party and you are invited.  Come to Seven Day Nursery in Santa Barbara on Saturday, Feb. 5 from 10 to 11 AM for some tea and snacks and talk about how compost tea can be used in the Winter season for soil and plant health.

Winter time is a particularly important time to fortify and enrich the soil environment in preparation for the active growing seasons of Spring, Summer and Fall. Adding biodynamic compost and applying compost tea will go a long way to helping build important microorganisms to the soil environment.  Compost tea applied to bare root plantings including fruit trees and roses can help to enliven plants and aid their transition into the landscape.  Biodynamic compost applied to the winter vegetable garden will greatly improve general fertility.

Come sip some tea, have a scone and learn how compost tea can nourish your landscape and garden environment.
