Come on over to my garden and meet my worms and check out my bin! My worms have been successfully churning out the "black gold" for me for over 6 years now. I will give a hands on demonstration for worm bin care and set up a new layer for my bin so you can see how to start your bin off right. Keeping a worm bin has many benefits for your garden and a more sustainable living (no more kitchen scraps in the trash)! Also, a great thing about worm bins is that you do not need a yard to keep one, a shaded patio or balcony will do. I know of people who have even kept them indoors but while I love my worms I couldn't live with them indoors.
We will harvest a layer of castings that are ready and then start a new layer of bedding and food to demonstrate a good worm balance. Please bring gloves if you are sensitive to icky goodness, and be prepared to get a little dirty. I will also show three ways of incorporating the castings into your garden in my raised bed. As always if you have something from the garden that you would like to share/exchange feel free to bring it! See you there!
