Wonderful opportunity to come and help with establishing healthy biodynamic gardens on school grounds as well as learning biodynamic practices for your home garden.
CPP (Cow Pat Pit) is a special type of compost which activates soil, encouraging better soil structure and breakdown of organic and inorganic substances. The resulting substance is a rich, living organic humus fertiliser teeming with beneficial soil microlife & plant growing nutrients. CPP is applied to the entire garden as a liquid fertiliser sprayed or watered on to soil, plants, seedlings, seed sowings and compost heaps (as a compost activator).
