Our Agricutlural Training class is off to a great start! With a room full of enthusiastic and curious students and our passionate guest teachers, we’ve covered a lot of material in our first six weeks together.
Most recently, Nashville Foodscapes’, Jeremy Lekich and Chris Childs came to share with our students about composting and cover cropping. Students learned the basics of three different kinds of composting operations: vermicomposting, small scale composting and large-scale composting. They got to see up close what a vermicompost system looked and felt like, and then, they got the chance to work in some compost using a broadfork. All new experiences for many of our students!
