As we shut down our gardens and prepare for winter, it's a great time to think about soil nutrition for the next growing season. Vermiculture provides incredible nutrients for your soil, while reducing kitchen waste. Worms can eat half their body weight in scraps each day, and turn it into “gold” for your plants. Best of all, worm bins are very low maintenance, take only a small space in your house or basement, and don’t smell or attract pests! Come learn more about raising little worm babies and make your own bin, complete with hungry worms that are looking for your compost scraps. This is a perfect activity for the whole family, kids are encouraged to attend...
Each participant will build their own worm composting bin, complete with pet worms, to take home.
