At Leda Farm we will be offering a workshop on making Biodynamic Compost. Wednesday May 13t @ 10 am.  It will last until about 1 pm.  All participants will get a cup of  Barrel Compost ,enough for 

2 to 3 home sized compost.  

We have selected May 13th because the moon is in the constellation of  Capricorn.  An auspicious time for compost making according to Biodynamic principals.

Dress for outdoor with boots recommended.  Hope you can make the event. 

The most important thing you can do for your health and the health of the planets is to eat local organic (Biodynamic) food.  Grow your own with Biodynamic Compost.
