Come join us and instructors Jan Nadamoto and Lee Ann Yuen to learn about microbes and how they can: help to create healthy leaves, improve your plants nutritional intake, minimize fungus mold and insects, and encourage development of a strong root system. At this workshop, participants will be taught how to use these microbes, how they play a part in Bokashi composting, and the variety of ways the mix and by-products can be used.

You will also be taught how to make some of this "liquid gold" made with indigenous microbes. You’ll be taking home your very own concoction to use on your own plants and you’ll be the envy of your neighbors and friends when they see how you manage such beautiful and healthy plants effortlessly!
