Event Overview

Anyone who’s spent at least a little bit of time in a garden knows earthworms are great. And their poop is great, too! That’s why many gardeners who want to avoid using chemical fertilizers turn to vermi-compositing, the practice of cultivating worms for compost. Worm poop, or castings, is produced as worms eat their way through material. This natural fertilizer provides readily available nutrients that you can use to amend your beds for extra plant food. MFBG Horticulturist Laura Del Vecchio will teach the class why vermi-composting is awesome and how to do it (it’s easy and odor free!) Attendees will make their own 3-gallon vermi-compost bin to take home. All materials will be provided.

Join us on Thursday, September 19 from 10AM-Noon. The cost is $20 per person.
