About The Event
Join us for our second installment of our 2023 Seminar Series, "Urine My Garden: Why & How to Peecycle at Home", presented by Julia Cavicchi of Rich Earth Institute. This webinar covers why & how to fertilize your garden with urine. Reclaiming urine as a fertilizer is a safe and simple practice that gardeners everywhere can learn to reclaim "waste" as a resource, access an abundance of free fertilizer, and prevent downstream pollution. The presentation covers step-by-step instructions for fertilizing with urine in home gardens using methods informed by Rich Earth's agricultural and social research. It introduces Rich Earth’s Home Gardening Guide and concludes with inviting participants to contribute to Rich Earth’s Community Science Survey. Julia will give a brief presentation and then have time for discussion for you to share your experiences and questions. Lake Champlain Basin residents can order a free peecycling kit for urine collection after the workshop!
Presentation will begin at 6:30 PM, followed by our regular UMATR monthly Committee Meeting. We encourage you to stick around for our business meeting to learn more about UMATR! We hope to see you there.
