Join the Master Gardeners Compost Team for an informative workshop that covers everything you’ve ever wanted to know about worm composting. Worm bins can be set up indoors or outdoors and therefore are great for small spaces like tiny houses and apartments. What’s more, the process produces a very rich fertilizer, also known as vermicompost or worm castings, for your home garden! In class, you’ll learn:
- how to make a worm bin
- the best types of bedding
- how to care for worms
- the do’s and dont’s of worm composting (what to feed them, what to avoid)
- the values and benefits of worm compost.
After the presentation, there will be time for questions.
