Intro to Vermiculture and Make Your Own Worm Bin!

Thursday May 16, 2019

6:00 PM – 7:30 PM

Join us for an evening of fun as we learn how to make our own vermicompost bin! Composting with worms is a simple process that diverts food waste from landfills, while producing super-enriched soil amendment. Come learn not only the basics about worms and worm composting, but also the science behind successfully gardening with worm products. Participants in this workshop will leave with an 18-gallon Rubbermaid bin which they have prepared with bedding and food for the worms, as well as ½ pound of red wigglers. Everything will be complete for a successful and operating worm bin to be maintained at home by the participant.
