Wednesday, March 8, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Vermicomposting is a way of using earth worms to compost organic material. One benefit of this method is that it can be done in the home using special bins that require a very small space.

The course will introduce you to the equipment needed including some inexpensive DIY options. It will help you select the right kind of worms and show you how to maintain them to keep them healthy. We’ll review ways of harvesting the vermicasts – the worm poop – and explain how it should be treated for best results in the garden.

At the end of this course you will know the basics of taking care of your new pets and how to resolve any problems you might have.

If you are going to take this course it is a good idea to also take Introduction to Composting for Gardeners.

Fee: $10 (plus HST) per person.
