This class teaches residents about vermicomposting, a composting method where worms convert food scraps into two of the best amendments on earth: worm castings, a fancy name for worm poop; and worm tea, a liquid fertilizer derived from either castings or the leachate collected from a worm bin. Residents learn how to care for the worms, make bedding, and harvest a worm bin.
Make-Your-Own Worm Bin Workshop
Following the Vermicomposting class, there is a hands-on workshop where attendees make their own worm bins to take home. Participants are taught how to harvest worms and receive enough worms to start their bin. Supplies to build a worm bin are necessary for this workshop. You can purchase a kit at the workshop for $26 or bring your own materials. Click HERE for the supply list. Class size is limited.
