You will have to learn how to properly collect materials, make compost that is properly balanced, maintained, and biologically verified with a microscope and recorded data.
The Compost Tea/Extract Practicum is the second step of the Consultant Training Program. You will have to demonstrate proficiency in making Biologically Enhanced Compost Tea and Extracts along with recording your verified data.
The Practical Demonstration Project is the Final Step in the Consultant Training Program. You will undertake a project to enhance the biology on a degraded site of your choosing.
