Join RTB’s Nate Sander to learn everything you want or need to know about Worm Composting! Vermicomposting, if we want to use the technical term to impress our friends and relatives, is the process of using worms and micro-organisms to turn kitchen scrapes into a nutrient-rich soil. During this workshop, Nate will talk about different ways you can incorporate this practice into your lifestyle, how we are using it on the farm, different styles of worm bins to fit your needs, and most importantly – how to get you started!
Worm composting is especially useful if you have a small yard or if you live in an apartment. Composting kitchen waste alone can reduce your garbage by up to a third while you are producing a healthy soil amendment for your container gardens, potted plants or seed starting trays come spring! If you already have a backyard compost area, don’t rule out a worm bin just yet; they are so helpful to have indoors during the winter months when not much is decomposing outside.
