Join the Food History Project for our next lecture on Monday, May 13th at 5:30pm at SLO Provisions, where we will dive deep into soil health and learn more about creating and maintaining a healthy garden with speaker Cristy Christie from Black Diamond VermiCompost.
Here’s a short story about Cristy and her business:
It all started with the broccoli in 2009.
After setting up a small worm bin and being amazed at what the worms had done to transform horse manure and food scraps, Cristy Christie & Jac Reid used some of their castings when transplanting a few broccoli plants. Harvesting the beautifully dark green, fully formed stocks and leaves was a new experience. The stocks were crisp with color throughout, not the typical hollow they were accustomed to seeing. The leaves were strong and not one bug was in sight. The broccoli never made it to the salad–both Jac and Cristy stood at the kitchen counter and ate every last bit of it! The decision was easy. We need to produce vermicompost for our community!
Join Cristy as she shares her insight into the business of composting, along with tips and tricks to grow your own tasty fruit and veggies. No samples to taste this time but you’ll learn the three secrets to growing a successful garden. Come early and buy dinner or a glass of wine. Discussion begins at 5:30pm.
