Fun Hands-On Compost Workshop Party Sat. Dec. 15 from 2 – 5pm Westwood

Spirit of the workshop
This workshop is meant to share my knowledge among family, friends, neighbors, friends and trusted circles. The intent is to learn, share experiences, build together in a collaborative manner… and have FUN! All the while learning something very down-to-earth and so useful for us to take responsibility and practice our stewardship of the bit of our beautiful planet earth we walk on.
What’s in the workshop?
  • Why compost?
  • Insight in understanding healthy soil
  • Hands-on activity (it’s more fun when you get your hands dirty!)
  • Different types of composting techniques (garden, wormcompost, hot compost…)
  • Specifics for Californian climate
  • What is the composting method adapted to your situation and use
  • Bonus : The workshop will end with a special in the making permaculture principle garden tour!
For whom?
As I am organizing the workshop at my family’s home I wish this workshop to stay rather intimate. I have only sent the invitation out to friends and trusted circles I know from LA. You are welcome to share the invitation among your interested friends and beloved family. Children are welcome if looked after by responsible bigger children. :-p
Maximum number of participants : 15
Sign up using the form to get the address!
What time?
Workshop is from 2 to 5pm. You are welcome to come starting 1:30pm in order to start on time. We have lots of things to do, and it starts getting dark early!
Workshop will last until 5pm and will be followed by a live music (karaoke) pot-luck!
How much does it cost?
That is up to you!
Give what you think is appropriate, I trust your judgment as to what you can afford and what is the workshop worth.
Know that the profits will be shared between me, the musicians and to help a permaculture project I will be starting in Togo next year.

Who am I?
Julia Schindler, French-American, I studied in France and graduated with a master’s degree in development and agricultural sciences. I have always wanted to do something for the environment, and when I discovered permaculture*, I found my passion! Since I have been traveling around the world (Australia, France, Germany, USA, Cuba, India…) working on organic farms, landscaping companies, working for non-profits and training as a teacher with the permaculture pioneers.
My passion is to make people not only learn but experience permaculture, and inspire them to have fun while saving the world! Raised with a multi-cultural background, I love traveling the world exploring new cultures and exchanging knowledge wherever I go, especially in less industrialized countries which suffer the most from climate change and our crazy economic system.
*Permaculture is a system’s design approach to creating societies that work with rather than against nature.
I’m looking forward to seeing you all! 🙂
