at El Sol Brillante community garden
526 E 12th St (between Ave A & B, middle of the block, southside of the street)
and the Children's Garden, 544 E 12th St & Ave B, southwest corner.

This workshop will focus on using bokashi fermented food waste in pots and planters, as well as, how we manage our 24-hour food waste drop-off.
We will make EM-5, a microbial inoculant for plants and soil, and go over soil health and pathogens.
We will start at El Sol Brillante (526 E 12th St) and end up at the Children's Garden (544 E 12th St).

(Sign-up is optional--people can just show up.)
