Vokashi Invitation, October 29th in Fort Greene

From Steve:
Dear Carrie McCracken TRUCE garden composters,
Looking forward to another  food waste deposit. I have prepared  an area
in a new planting box.  I am forwarding a communication from Vandra;
eco-entrepreneur and activist Board Member of the New York City Community
Garden Coalition. Vokashi  http://nyccgc.org/
She has invited us to be a part of an  exciting event reviewing
progress in spreading the potential benefits of Bokashi recycling.
I spoke with Vandra yesterday; and she would like to know if we
can attend and present word of our collaboration. Please share
with the participants at HCFS to see how many can attend and
share the flyer with your networks. The  sooner we get this technology inot
widespread use for environmental and agricultural benefits; the greener our
urban communities will be.
Invitation from Vandra:
As seasoned or new fermenters, I would really appreciate your attending this demonstration. While the program will include the basics of fermenting from making the bran, to watching a couple of the composting practices, I would also like to introduce other gardens using fermented food waste and the research that is going on at Brooklyn College.
 Want to recycle your food scraps? and help urban composting? Have you heard about fermenting food scraps? Do you know that fermented food scraps is good for composting and worm bins?
hear the developing story
of fermenting food waste in NYC
from fermenters, scientists, gardeners,
households and small businesses, all recycling their organic food waste and providing valuable resources for community garden composting
