April 11th: VERMICOMPOSTING WORKSHOP (Worm Casings Compost)

Saturday, April 11, 2015 10 AM – 12 PM

This workshop will teach the basics of composting with worms – an inexpensive, low labor and low maintenance way to create a rich soil amendment year round.  Vermicompost (worm “castings”) is a ready-to-use, slow release organic fertilizer that is suitable for both indoor and outdoor plants.

Increasingly, research is proving it to be highly nutritive and a more powerful growth promoter than conventional composts. Studies are also showing that it protects plants from pests and diseases. Unique among composting methods, vermicomposting can be done as easily in an apartment or a house with a yard because it requires little space,  and it is clean. The worms feedstock can consist solely of kitchen scraps.

Instructor Carol Maclennan has been creating “black gold” with worms for more than 20 years. Her workshop topics will include:

  •  How to make simple worm bins
  •  Feeding, caring for and harvesting your worms
  •  Benefits of vermicompost

Space is LIMITED  preregistration is required for the Workshop and Worm Bins

Workshop: $15        Worm Bin $30
