Compost Workshop - Camp Arroyo
Livermore Valley Garden Club (LAVGC) serving the Tri-Valley: Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, Sunol, and San Ramon
In November we had a workshop on composting, including worm bins and cover crops. This was a work shop for the true hands-on, grow-it-yourself gardener. The weather cooperated and it turned out to be a beautiful Fall day out at Camp Arroyo. The first photograph is the view from the potting shed where we held our workshop. We came away with our heads spinning with information.

Notes from the meeting
Topics included:
  • Worm bins by local worm ranch owner, Matt Abbruscato, composting for the home gardener
  • Cover crops by Diane Dhovoluk: page 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
  • Compost tea by Jim O'Laughlin: page 1, 2, 3
Resources: All of our speakers were outstanding and extremely knowledgeable about their subjects - we could have chatted to them for days! Somehow or other we managed to fit all of that into three short hours and still had time to sip some cider and eat apple cake.
