Worm Compost Workshop
$0.00 – $15.00
2021 Worm Compost Workshop
Created & Led by:
Common Roots’ Education & Communications Development Coordinator
Learn how to set up your very own worm composting system at home to recycle food scraps into a rich soil amendment.
DATE & TIME
Wednesday, June 2nd, 6PM
ZOOM Meeting (LINK WILL BE SENT ONCE REGISTERED)
Everything you need to know about starting up and maintaining a worm bin compost system, also known as vermicomposting. Perfect for small space composting and apartment living, or in addition to other composting systems you already have started at your home. Vermicompost is every gardener's dream as a finished soil amendment, and serves as a fast, easy food waste diversion tool.
Your host, Katie, will start with an informative presentation all about the wonderful world of worm composting at home and finish with a live demonstration on how to make your own. During last year’s gardening season, Katie set up her very own worm compost and was wildly impressed by the nutrient rich results and how easy it was to DIY with only a few supplies required!
**This event will be hosted live online via Zoom. Registered participants will be emailed the Zoom link 30 minutes before the start of the workshop. If you do not see the email, make sure to check your junk folder.**
