Learn about the wonderful world of composting with worms! This workshop covers the basics of why composting is important, and how to start and maintain a vermicomposting system at home. After attending this workshop, you'll receive significant discounts on vermicomposting bins.
Vermicomposting is a great home composting solution for people without a backyard space, because you can site your worm farm inside your home or on a balcony. It's also great for anyone interested in how living worms can produce great compost!
