A well made compost is as good as gold when you want your garden to thrive with healthy plants and nutrient rich produce, but compost can easily go wrong with the wrong recipe or the wrong conditions.

Permaculture educator, Lichen June, teaches this fun and fact filled class. Learn about soil structure and function, how plants eat, pH effect on available nutrients, weeds as indicators and paramedics, compost recipe and care, and how to adjust that recipe when things go wrong or you want to speed up the process.

Lichen June was formerly executive director of the NW Permaculture Institute, faculty of the Permaculture Woman’s Guild Permaculture Design Course, and educator with the NW Oregon Dairy Goat Assn. She currently runs Briar Rose Croft, a regenerative farm that supports the local community through food and educational events.

Class will be by donation, no one turned away for lack of funds. April 15, 10am-1pm at Briar Rose Croft, 15 mins outside Silverton. For class information or putting your name on the wait list contact Briar Rose Croft on Facebook, text 503-449-8077, or call 503-873-3480
