Worm Composting 101
Worm composting is the fastest and easiest way to recycle household food waste.
For many years gardeners and farmers alike have used worm composting to convert kitchen scraps into dark, dense, earth-smelling soil that increases the germination, growth, and yield of their vegetables and flowers without any packaging or transportation, yielding healthier plants while reducing landfill space and lowering your carbon footprint.
In this two hour workshop, we will show you what containers you can find for free or cheap that work well for worm composting, what kinds of foodscraps worms can digest and what never to add, how and when to harvest the resulting soil, how to keep your bin smelling fresh indoors and out, and the best uses for your excellent resulting compost.
Because worm composting happens in a closed 2 by 3 foot container, you can practice this sustainable cycle of life even in an apartment with a fire escape garden.
The picture at right shows carrots grown with and without worm compost. Worm compost will make your veggies bigger, no joke, so come learn about it.
