Worm Composting  

March 31, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


March 31         6:00 pm                  Join the WSU Master Gardeners for this online Worm box composting workshop.  Vermiculture, or worm box composting, which is a 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.

You will learn about this method of composting, and build your own simple composting box with the kit included in this course.  The kit contains everything you need to begin your vermiculture experience, including worms. The tuition for this workshop is $30, which includes your kit, an exclusive link to an informative presentation about worm composting and how to maintain your worms, and this will be followed by step-by-step video instruction for building  your own bin from the workshop kit.  The class is limited to 40 participants.
