Description

Worm Composting and Worm Bin Construction

Saturday, May 4th -- 10 am to 12 pm at Alemany Farm
Instructors: Francois Gaudin and Abby Bell

Do you want to turn your kitchen scraps into rich and nutritious soil amendment for your garden or house plants? In this workshop we will learn about worms, the benefits of vermicomposting, how to start your own worm bin, care for your worms, and turn your vegetable scraps into rich soil. Participants will also have the opportunity to build and bring home their own bin and worms. Let worms eat your garbage!

Abby Bell is the current farm manager of Alemany Farm, the co-founder of "Food, What?!", and a long-time gardener/farmer, food justice activist, and lover of food.

Francois Gaudin is a volunteer co-manager of Alemany Farm and permaculture enthusiast.
