About this Event

Vermicomposting is the decomposing or breaking down of organic material using worms - in this case - Red Wigglers. The word "vermi" means "worm".

The essential components are: a container with holes (for air circulation), moist bedding (paper, leaves), and worms.

My grandfather used to have a big wood box of nightcrawlers in his basement. He would feed them scraps and leaves all winter, then we would use them for fishing in the spring. The same principles apply here, except our goal is to create a nutrient-rich soil enhancement (as opposed to fishing worms).

In this class, you will learn how to set up a worm bed (vermicomposter) and how to keep it working efficiently and effectively. You will also learn what not to do (from my own personal experience).

If you would like to purchase worms, I will have some on hand. This will allow you to get started on your composting adventure right away. You can also purchase worms online from places like "Uncle Jim's Worm Farm". Yes, that's a thing.

If you have a flower garden, veggie garden, or anything that grows around your home, this is an excellent way to provide nutrients inexpensively. It's also kind of fun.
