What: CarbonfreeDC Apartment Worm Composting Tour -- Space Limited
When: April 22, 2009 6:30 PM
RSVP here: http://www.meetup.com/carbonfreedc/calendar/10178555/
You asked for it, and we delivered... next Wednesday, visit a DC apartment to see how Tania, a CarbonfreeDC member, composts with worms!
Because of obvious space constraints, this hands-on how-to tour is limited to 12 attendees. Please only RSVP 'Yes' if you are seriously considering taking this step in your own home.
A note from Tania: "We are reducing our landfill contribution by consuming less overly packed goods; recycling everything possible; and vermicomposting our food waste. This is an easy system, but it requires attention and maintenance (and a love for soil and worms)."
Composting is the decomposition of organic materials to make an earthy, dark, crumbly substance that is excellent nutrition for your houseplants or enriching your garden. It is the best way to recycle your yard and kitchen wastes, and is a critical step in reducing the volume of garbage needlessly sent to landfills for disposal.
Vermicomposting is a method of decomposing vegetable or food waste using worms. Worms turn the matter into worm castings which looks -- and function -- much like topsoil. This organic material is great for gardens, plants and neighborhood flowerbeds and trees.Learn more and RSVP here:
