Cow Pat Pit CPP Workshop at Farmhouse Kitchen
(Saturday 28th of October 2017 from 10am – 12.30pm is to be postponed to)
Saturday the 3rd of March 2018 from 10 am – 12.30pm
Our cow dung is way to runny for making a good CPP- pit at the moment, because of all the fresh green grass! So we have to set a new date in late February, when there is more fibrous dryer grass for the animals to eat.
At Farmhouse Kitchen we are introducing the CPP. We will be building this from scratch, it is a specially designed brick lined pit. Then we collect fresh mature from our cows, that graze our organic paddocks. The manure will be mixed with ground eggshells and basalt dust, and inoculated with biodynamic preparations. Then it is all mixed and placed in the pit, where it will be undergo a fermenting process, aerobic decomposting for three months. The end result is CPP.
Rachel Pomeroy will be our guide, and she teaches us how to prepare and use CPP for plant growth and strengthening plants against diseases and pathogenic fungi. She will also have ready CPP for sale.
Arrive from 10am, and after a nourishing morning tea and introduction we will get to work !
