The organisms we want in our soil are all aerobic organisms, they die, or go dormant without oxygen being present.
So then if one wanted to use kambucha or kefir to add bacteria to the soil, it should be aerated first I assume.

I gave my son a measuring cup, and he dumped his one two different places, and then wanted more! My 1.5 year old daughter got a little plastic tea cup...and promptly spilled half of it on the driveway, and dumped the rest somewhere else...and instantly wanted more! I gave them both seconds--my son put his on one of his corn sprouts *sploosh!* I have no idea where my daughter deposited her's--probably in the lawn! Due to their rather ineffective--but very enthusiastic--"helping" I went inside to make a second batch so I could actually get some under my fruit trees. And, of course, they all wanted more to pour out, and they of course got some :D.
Who knew mushroom slurries could be so much fun! My son even drank some :-D Mmmm, oyster mushroom slurry!
