Worm Composting for Beginners

February 26, 2019, 6:00 PM8:00 PM


Come and learn how to construct, set up, and maintain a worm bin to compost kitchen vegetable waste in order to recycle it as plant food. Join Jock Robie as he discusses the harvesting of worm castings and vermin-compost for gardening and houseplants as well as “worm tea”! Each student will set up their own worm bin with worms to take home. All materials and worms are supplied at no extra charge.

Instructor Jock Robie has over eight years of practical experience designing, building, and using worm bins to compost kitchen waste. He feeds his 40 worm bins close to 35 pounds per week of kitchen scraps. Visit Jock’s blog for more information about worm composting.

Cost: $11.

Limit: 10 students. (As of Feb. 2, there were 4 seats left.)
