October 13 6:00 pm Worm Composting Do you realize that about 1/3 of our kitchen scraps ends up in the garbage? WSU Master Gardener Art Fuller will describe how to harness the power of worms to recycle food waste and create an amazing soil amendment for our gardens. Learn the process in which red wiggler worms and microorganisms are used to convert kitchen fruit and vegetable waste (peelings, etc.) into nutrient-rich, humus – “black gold” – compost. This is an amazing fertilizer and soil conditioner that will make your garden plants healthier and more productive. This free online workshop you will learn about this method of composting.
You can purchase a simple composting box kit for $30.00. The kit contains everything you need to begin your vermiculture experience, including worms. The kit also includes an exclusive link to an informative presentation about worm composting followed by step-by-step video instruction for building your own bin. Register and pay securely online https://www.ticketsource.us/wsu-extension-master-gardeners . Pickup of bins will be in Longview on October 11 between 11 A.M and 1 P.M.
