Easy Composting with Worms!

July 16, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free w/ park entrance fee.

Let these “little composters” save landfill space while turning your kitchen vegetable and fruit waste into black gold! Even if you live in an apartment you can host a small bin under the kitchen sink. Worm castings are useful in many ways: compost tea, potting soils, top dressing for house plants and seedlings, to name a few. Tommie Clayton, Master Gardener Compost Specialist, will show you how worm bins work, demonstrate how to construct your own worm bin and get it started, methods for harvesting castings plus brewing your own compost tea.
