Learn the ins and outs of vermicomposting
March 11 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
The Phillies Bridge Farm Project will host a home vermicomposting workshop with Community Compost Company on Saturday, March 11 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Are you interested in harnessing the many benefits of setting up a worm bin in your home? Earthworms like red wigglers and Indian blues not only digest food scraps that would otherwise be destined for the landfill, they produce worm castings (worm poop) — an excellent soil amendment.
Each participant can build a basic worm bin during the workshop. Materials and worms will be provided. Admission cost is $40 per attendee. One child may attend for free with each adult registrant and help to construct the worm compost bin.
