Anyone, anywhere, can compost at home with a worm bin. In this hands-on workshop, you will make your own tidy and efficient indoor composting bin specifically designed for composting in apartments or other indoor spaces. The workshop includes supplies to construct your own bin, and of course, worms! Composting creates rich humus (the organic component of healthy soil and a natural fertilizer), from your vegetable and fruit scraps. Learn all you need to know to recycle your food waste, care for your worms, harvest the compost, and feed your plants. Worm bins also make great gifts, so each attendee can make and take two worm bins for only $20 more. (Please contact Lindsey at 919-213-1278 if you wish to purchase an additional bin.)
Teachers and Friends Club members receive discounted rates.
