Got Worms?

Feeling squirmy for spring? Join Castaway Keith of Castaway Compost for a class on how to turn your everyday trash (fruit and veggie scraps, paper, and cardboard) into something your indoor plants and garden will love. You’ll learn how to compost indoors with worms – it’s easy, affordable, good for the environment and you!

The average family sends 200 to 400 pounds of easily compostable waste to the landfill every year. You can have worms turn it into your very own potting soil and plant food for free.

Working worm bins will be available to take home. Either 18-gallon tote or 11-gallon flow-thru (view the options).

Tuesday, March 18
6:30p.m. to 7:30p.m.

Members w/ bin: $25
Non-members w/ bin: $30
Just attend the class, no bin: $10

    I am biased but give myself 5 stars. Thanks Rick for putting the info out there. Three other AG & H members attended -- thank you as well. Ten new worm composting households now -- awesome!

      Glad I could help. Your class helped me turn my composting around. Keep spreading the good word!

      Thanks Rick. My first sentence should say "CAN'T give myself 5 stars".

    Hi Gaynel,
    I am a big fan of selling worms but I think that you will be just fine with the additional organic material you put down. I am also a big fan of no-till. I would think that your earthworms and other decomposers will break the manure and rabbit poop into nutrients that will help your plants. However, a worm bin is a great way to convert paper, cardboard and food waste into a great soil amendment for cheap. And that would be something that you could top-dress all growing season to help your plants. Hope this helps.

      It may be the spot as well. Try planting a portion on tomatoes in a different spot and compare to planting in the same spot. Many people including myself had lower yields last year because summer was not as warm as usual and not as hot as long.

      Thank you guys for your answers, I don't think that I want to leave the rabbit poop on top because it looks so ugly. Plus everybody will know what it is, haha. And thank you Keith for tell me about the worms. Rick, your statement really make sense now that I know I'm not the only one who didn't have a great prop last year. I had foot surgery and I couldn't go out in the yard and so I thought that was the reason but now I know it may be different. Thank you again guys, for your feedback.

    Hi, last late fall i put lots of coffee grounds and rabbit poop in my modest garden in hopes of replenishing the nutrients to be able to grow tomatoes again. Over the past few years they have become less and less and last year I hardly had any tomatoes. I need to figure out how to till this all into the soil (don't own a tiller) and I was wondering if worms would work?

    Hi Guys,

    This is the first meet-up I'm able to come to. Don't know how the payment stuff works. Do I pay through here, or cash at the door? I'd like to get a bin too, do I need to make some sort of reservation for that?

    Thanks Guys. Have a good one!

      Use this link http://poguesrungroce...­ I posted it for Keith here but they are doing payments at the link above. You may be able to pay at the door too.

      That'll work! Thanks Rick!
